    remote pbs pulling more from main pbs than specified

    i have main PBS1 and remote PBS2. on PBS2 i set up pull sync job from PBS1 and i see it pulls more than what exists on PBS1. how is that possible. Main PBS1 is dedicated with local ZFS, remote PBS2 is virtual with TrueNAS NFS backend. VM backup for one VM on PBS1 has count 7 (keeping 7 backups...

    Disk configuration for new (virtual) backup server?

    i was thinking more in terms of expanding storage in the future without shutting and handling everything on the os level but this is also a good point!

    Disk configuration for new (virtual) backup server?

    use pbs to set up zfs mirror and let os control it. disks in pass-through mode. this is the recommended setup.

    Shrinking a VM within Zpool

    to make it easier and safer add new disk/s on same or different storage backend add those to the VM, boot with live iso (hbcd, ubcd etc) and clone everything to new drives while resizing the partitions. then you can delete old and boot from new drives. longer process but safer imho. edit: only...

    Proxmox VE Ceph Benchmark 2018/02

    we're on standard which becomes quite a job to make sure we're compliant so we will definitely invest in datacenter once our workload goes up. thanks for the tip on the ms licensing but it always makes my head spin lol. we'd probably be fine with 3 nodes too but the hardware is on the older...

    Proxmox VE Ceph Benchmark 2018/02

    once again excellent piece of information. those are some beefy servers you got there. i'm trying to re purpose 5 older dual e5-26xx R430 256GB RAM and hopefully they'll do the trick as our workload isn't too crazy (around 20 VMs 99% win based) and we hope to have some room in case we double it...

    Proxmox VE Ceph Benchmark 2018/02

    Hi Stephan. Is this a hyper converged setup? or just ceph managed through proxmox? list i linked shows that two ceph users experience transfer rate drop while copying 2gb+ files around 1-1.5gb mark (significant drop to 25MB/s) which only happens on windows guests and not linux. would you be able...
