  1. API to read QEMU VM creation time or uptime?

    Is anybody able to help with the above questions, in help deciphering tasks output? In particular, I'm stuck on how to get the friendly name for clones (as they appear in the GUI), or friendly names for disks? And - is there any interest in getting some kind of dashboard, or export of this...
  2. Best way to get total number of running/stopped VMs for dashboard?

    I'm trying to create a realtime dashboard of the number of running/stopped VMs on a Proxmox cluster. What is the easiest way of doing this? qm list seems to be one option: root@foo-vm01:~# qm list --full true VMID NAME STATUS MEM(MB) BOOTDISK(GB) PID 100...
  3. fio with ioengine=rbd doesn't work with Proxmox's Ceph?

    Thanks wolfgang and spirit for the pointer! =) The issue was the rbdname - I needed to point it to an actual RBD volume. The client name is just the Ceph username (e.g. "admin"). I assume fio must use a default of admin, as it seems to work without it (and I assume Proxmox creates the user...
  4. fio with ioengine=rbd doesn't work with Proxmox's Ceph?

    I have a new Proxmox cluster setup, with Ceph setup as well. I have created my OSDs, and my Ceph pool. I'm now trying to use fio with ioengine=rbd to benchmark the setup, based on some of the examples here. However, it doesn't appear to be working on Proxmox's Ceph setup out of the box: #...
  5. Proxmox will not boot from ZFS (UEFI mode) - No root device specified

    I'm connecting the ISO through a Raritan Dominion KX3 KVM - this goes via USB but I believe it exposes it as an optical drive. When set to UEFI - it simply does not show that as a bootable option.
  6. Proxmox will not boot from ZFS (UEFI mode) - No root device specified

    Aha, the issue is - if I set it to UEFI from the start - then the SuperMicro doesn't seem to boot from the ISO. If it's in DUAL - is there some way to force the Proxmox installer to go to UEFI mode?
  7. Proxmox will not boot from ZFS (UEFI mode) - No root device specified

    I have a SuperMicro 1029P-WTR, and I have just installed Proxmox 6.1 on it. The boot disk is a M.2 NVMe SSD (Team MP34). I chose to install on ZFS (RAID0) on this disk. I had boot mode previously set to DUAL, but I've changed it to UEFI after the install (SuperMicro won't seem to boot from...
  8. 3-node Proxmox/Ceph cluster - how to automatically distribute VMs among nodes?

    @spirit - Any word on open-sourcing your DRS extension for Proxmox? It sounds exciting, would love to see it, even if it early stages.
  9. Using SR-IOV for separate VM Traffic, Ceph and Corosync networks?

    To answer this question - see here: You can create different virtual network interfaces in Linux, each one a different VLAN, then assign them to the Corosync/Ceph networks when you run the wizard.
  10. Feature suggestion: Option to set "auto live migration"

    Yes, I saw the 6.1 release notes. I believe you're referring to it now migrating VMs when you intentionally shut-down a host. However, unless I'm mis-reading the feature, this isn't the same as auto-scheduling of VMs. Many modern hypervisors have a scheduling policy for clusters - where when...
  11. How do you tag a interface in Proxmox with a VLAN?

    Hi, I'm setting up a new 4-node Promox/Ceph HA cluster using 100Gb networking. Each node will have a single 100Gb link. (Later on, we may look at a second 100Gb link for redundancy). Previously, we were using 4 x 10Gb links per node: 1 x 10Gb for VM traffic and management 1 x 10Gb for...
  12. How do you send Command key (⌘) to a VM via noVNC?

    Hi, I have a running MacOS Mojave VM running on Proxmox (per this guide). However, if my local machine is running Linux - how do I sent a Command key (⌘) through to the VM, using the noVNC client? Thanks, Victor
  13. Unable to do PCI Passthrough with Dell R630 server?

    From reading online - I think However, I'm not sure if the R630 supports IOMMU? Anyhow - the use-case for this was to run ntopNG in a VM - I wanted to pass through a NIC, with one of...
  14. Unable to do PCI Passthrough with Dell R630 server?

    I tried enabling the "X2APIC" setting, and rebooting. Still nothing coming up under IOMMU groups - very strange. root@angusmtv-mon01:~# dmesg | grep -e DMAR -e IOMMU [ 0.012962] ACPI: DMAR 0x000000007BAFE000 0000D0 (v01 DELL PE_SC3 00000001 DELL 00000001) [ 1.058586] DMAR: Host...
  15. Unable to do PCI Passthrough with Dell R630 server?

    Is there normally a separate setting for IOMMU There's a setting for VT-d (default to on). That is currently on. And there's a setting for SR-IOV (default to off). I've enabled that. I did see another setting for "X2APIC" mode that is currently disabled. Is that related at all to IOMMU?
