Are you theorizing? Here is the practice:
Windows immediately shows how much it is available to the maximum, even if it uses less than the minimum value.
This is exactly how this VM is used. The whole working day of the VM uses less than 2GB, at night a backup program starts, for which 2GB...
The balloons were to be found among the modules:
root@dstore:~# lsmod | grep balloon
virtio_balloon 12997 0
virtio_ring 17342 5 virtio_net,virtio_pci,virtio_balloon,virtio_console,virtio_scsi
virtio 13058 5...
Yes! And in the all my Linux-VMs!
"All Linux distributions released after 2010 have the balloon kernel driver included."
I thought that this should suffice:
# cat /etc/pve/qemu-server/*.conf | grep balloon
New Question - How to enable use ballooning in linux-VMs?
I read the Help unconditionally. There is no answer to this question:
"Yesterday shown VM started using the Swap and the available memory was only 2GB."
And also there is no explanation why Windows VMs in any case show all available memory.
I'm trying to understand how the ballooning work.
And my misunderstanding can be seen in the picture.
Why VM see 2GB RAM presence only?
This situation is observed for Linux-VMs. Windows-VMs see memory completely.
Yesterday shown VM started using the Swap and the available memory was...
Do you understand that a VM on a cluster node is just a configuration file?
This configuration file allows the node to allocate the necessary resources for the VM.
And disks for all VMs in your case are stored in the SAN-storage.
If you are using HA and have lost 2 of 3 nodes, then such a...
I join this approach. And I use a similar configuration in my work.
I have 4 nodes (the 5th node will be soon) in the main cluster (storage CEPH).
And a single node with Proxmox VE as a backup server (for VMs and CTs from main cluster). Storage - 4 HDD ZFS RAIDZ-1.
