    Proxmox 5.3.8 - IO delay issues explained ?

    I know zero about your environment and depending on how "affordable" you want, look on ebay for Intel DC SSD drives. These are datacenter rated drives and unless they were seriously abused, likely you'll never wear them out. Ask the sellers to send you the SMART data and confirm the drives are...

    Mild Disk IO brings VM to its knees

    My own experience with write performance on SSDs that have a capacity smaller than 128G is they suck really really bad. A couple cheap consumer grade SSDs that I own which are 64G write about 512MB then lock up the entire system until the entire write finishes and the sync closes. They are...

    Proxmox VE 5.1 released!

    What steps did you follow in this upgrade guide? https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Upgrade_from_4.x_to_5.0 Specifically, the Introduction section that says, "you'd better empty the browser's cache after upgrade and reload the GUI page or there is the possibility that you see a lot of glitches."?

    Proxmox VM shutsdown after backup

    Do you have an error message in the task area or in the backup job? Also, what version of Debian are you running? Stretch (v9)?

    Linux (Debian) VMs nach Backup down

    Is there an ETA for a fix or a valid workaround? I've tried switching between SCSI and virtio, enabled/disabled writeback, and tried other suggestions in this forum still broken. This starting to become an issue for us because now about 80% of our VMs won't restart after backup. I can provide...

    Stop vm for backup

    Is there a fix for this yet? I have VMs all over the place that are not starting and no combination of virtio or SCSI is solving the issue. - TASK ERROR: start failed: org.freedesktop.systemd1.UnitExists: Unit 123.scope already exists. This is starting to become a big problem for us...

    proxmox 5 - no boot with USB, and cdrom ISO fails at 100%

    I don't know why they would, but I'll leave the official answer to the proxmox support. What boot mode are you using and how did you set the SATA devices? Are you using legacy boot mode and AHCI SATA by chance?

    Proxmox not booting after Upgrade

    "So would the fastest thing be to reinstall the usb" I read somewhere you need to set the boot delay to a minute so the LVM can start up if you insist from running Proxmox off a USB stick, but I'm not sure if that is the case or not. Generally it is advised against running Proxmox from a USB...

    Comparing file systems for VM storage

    That and we tend to include SSD drives either as cache or use SSD drives for the entire data store these days. I didn't read closely, but curious of they enabled compression on ZFS. Really though, while good to see benchmarks, storage is finding the right balance between capacity, performance...

    NFS storage is not online (500)

    I eventually ditched FreeNAS over inconsistent ZFS send/receive issues and decided to use Proxmox as my storage server. I use ZFS backed storage with zraid1 or zraid2, which then allows me to use the machine as both a place to store snapshots as well as export NFS mounts and SMB shares. I...

    Excellent Results: 7 machines upgraded to 5.0

    Was thinking I was insane for going with 5.0 rather than waiting on 5.1, but the upgrade process was smooth enough on two test machines that I decided to upgrade the remaining machines. Took the time to run regular proxmox backups and take ZFS snapshots. The upgrade went much smoother than I...

    Proxmox VE 5 stable version

    I could easily apply the same to your post, given you left out the most critical part. From the proxmox 5.0 announcement thread: Q: When do you expect the stable Proxmox VE release? A: The final Proxmox VE 5.0 will be available as soon as Debian Stretch is stable, and all release critical bugs...
