    Sudden reboots while running backups (maybe ZFS ram issue?)

    I am investigating 2 incidents that seem to be similar. On 2 different PVE servers, both running ZFS with raidz (mirroring with 2 disks), I experience random reboots during backups of KVM machines. (no clustering, single hosts) Both server are low on RAM. One has 8 GB RAM and a single VM with 1...
