    I successfully installed OSX (BigSur and Monterey) on Proxmox v7.1-10. I have an intel 11700K (16 cores). I initially ran the VM with 16 cores allocated but after some time (15-30 minutes), the Mac OSX VMs freeze. I read that it's better to allocate a couple cores (2-4) for the host machine...

    How to monitor LXC CPU usage ?

    How would I go about monitoring the CPU usage for an LXC container ? Solutions like in Nagios reads /proc but since the CPU are shared we get a lot of false positive.
