    Check the disk usage of a virtual machine

    I am very happy to discuss issues with you here. But I have a problem now. After I created a Linux virtual machine in proxmox, I allocated 40G of space to it, and then I wanted to check its real-time disk usage. Rate, for example, he uses 10G in the system. I want to get this approximate value...

    Hi, Using Proxmox 8.1.3. Installed with all default options. The hard drive is an NVMe, 1TB. Just began to practice, creating some small VMs. I noticed the pve summary shows HD space = 93GB (screenshot 1). Where is the remaining storage space of the 1TB drive? The Node / Disks section does...

    Local disk full when uploading ISO image

    Hi, I did something stupid. I tried to upload an ISO image when there was not enough disk space. I got an Error '0' occurred while receiving the document. The problem is that Proxmox does not remove the half-copied files apparently. My disk is full and none of the files are present. What is...

    Allocated disk capacity and actual occupied capacity

    When I allocated disk space for a virtual machine, I found that the actual space occupied was 107% of the space I allocated. For example, I check that my remaining available capacity is 501GB, and I allocate 500GB to the virtual machine, which will actually occupy a space of 536GB, and then IO...

    [SOLVED] VM multiple disks: actual vm usage vs. proxmox usage

    Hi there, I am pretty new to proxmox and just finished setting up a Windows Server 2022 VM. It is running smoothly but I am noticing some behaviour that I can not explain: I have two ZFS pools, one ~1TB(Pool1 [local-zfs]) another one ~2TB(Pool2 [rpool_data], created on the Webinterface after...

    [SOLVED] Get VM Disk Details

    This is a fresh installation with ZFS. I have successfully migrated a 2TB VM from VirtualBox into Proxmox. Afterwards I deleted many unneeded big files within this VM. How can I tell what physical disk space this VM's disk is taking? I'm completely unsure, if the VM's trim mechanism works...

    [SOLVED] Real size of diskspace used in backups

    Is there a way to get the real value of how much disk space is used per server backup? Currently I have 7 nightly rolling snapshot backups for my VMs and CTs but each one of them shows a very similar file size in PBS (understandably), generally growing slightly each night as more data is added...

    Know list of VMs with its disk sizes?

    Dealing with several PVE hosts, all of them are standalone, I want to know disk of each VM in some algorithically easy way. The problem that, some of VMs are raw or qcow2 files, some are stored in zfs volumes. I suspect I can only scan /etc/pve/qemu-server/*.conf files for virtio/scsi/ide/sata...

    Disks size / LVM mismatch

    Hello, Today I used CloneZilla to image my original 256GB NVMe disk onto a new 1 TB NVMe disk, with the option to resize the partitions proportionally. It looks like CloneZilla did what it is supposed to, the system boots up and if I go into the Disks view within Proxmox I see it now says...

    [SOLVED] Expanding Volume Passed to VM

    I have an Areca raid controller that I was going to pass to the VM, but I'm having issues with it the VM not being able to reboot because it isn't "releasing" the card.
