    vzdump appears to be slowing down VM IO

    My storage is regular raw files on a EXT4 partition. I'm primarily curious if disk writes are hijacked to write to both the backup and the actual disk, as limited bandwidth seems to aggravate this.

    vzdump appears to be slowing down VM IO

    When trying to backup a large VM to a remote server using vzdump (snapshot mode), the writes on the VM appear to be slowed down greatly. Are disk writes affected (maybe writes are slowed down during a backup) when a backup is in progress, to maintain consistency?

    CPU unit max limit changed in PVE 7

    I upgraded one of my test nodes to try out PVE 7, and I noticed that one VM was not starting. The error was TASK ERROR: start failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Value specified in CPUWeight is out of range It seems that this is due to cgroups v2, where the max limit of this is...

    Empty groups when running prune job

    When all backups of an existing VM(s) are deleted, the empty backup group seems to be left behind. The log of the prune job looks something like this: 2021-04-20T19:03:08-04:00: verify datastore ds0 2021-04-20T19:03:08-04:00: found 4 groups 2021-04-20T19:03:08-04:00: verify group ds0:vm/1000 (0...

    Missing tasks in the task log

    I just restored a handful of VMs (to a fresh PVE install) from backups, however only 2 restores are showing up in the webgui tasks. I noticed the tasks are still there in /var/log/pve/index and their associated task log files are present too. Is this a known bug?

    Restore to another VM from a snapshot

    Is it possible to take snapshots, independent of VMs, and restore them to other VMs? It would functionally be similar to backups, except that it would just be a disk image.

    VM PNG RRD API Statistics

    Can't add a new node to a cluster

    Hi, I have a cluster with 7 nodes, running for quite some time, smoothly. But on trying to add another node, it seems to fail, and I can no login to the 8th node using SSH (my SSH key was added, it asks me to provide a password, and the root password doesn't work either). Same for the Proxmox...
