  1. Migrating thin provisioned disks results in the transfer as if it's thick provisioned.

    I have discovered something else with further testing. It appears that the migration does in fact not take up bandwidth (when going nfs to nfs), but is very cpu intensive. This dual core test machine had it's cpu pegged at 100% the entire disk move (nfs to nfs). I did confirm that the data is...
  2. Migrating thin provisioned disks results in the transfer as if it's thick provisioned.

    That's interesting. I installed netdata on proxmox and monitored it. When montoring what happened when I migrated from one nfs share to the other, all free space on the virtual drive was still read bit by bit from my nfs share, even though it was empty. Here is a test that I just did that...
  3. Migrating thin provisioned disks results in the transfer as if it's thick provisioned.

    If you have a thin provisioned disk (say 128GB), but the actual size of the disk is only 6GB after install, why does proxmox need to physically move 128GB of data when migrating a disk to another network storage location (even though the file is 6GB)? What is the limitation here? It does not...
  4. qcow2 clone - Skip empty space

    I have noticed that if I try to clone a VM, the clone process will read the entire virtual disk, including empty space, even though it's a qcow2 > qcow2 clone, within the same nfs share. Is there a way to optimize that? When you have virtual disk that span more than 100 gigs, it really becomes a...
  5. Suggestion - Allow organization via folders.

    I stand corrected. I did not know that existed. Thanks.
  6. Suggestion - Allow organization via folders.

    Hello all. I have an idea and I think it would be a solid use case for those who have a lot of VMs. Instead of having a giant long list of VMs, I think it would be a good idea to be able to create folders on the left where the list of VMs are. It would be easier to group VMs and manage them...
