    cpu spikes caused by pvesr / pvesm

    Hi everyone, since installing the latest updates (see below), my fans speed up every 15 minutes for some seconds. This did not happen before. Using atop, I found <pvesr> and <pvesm> to be the cause, as they briefly bump CPU usage from a 2% average to more than 60%. It's not a big deal for me...

    LXC: loadavg increased after cpulimit enabled

    Hello, We configured cpulimit=0.5 for all container, and after that server load avarage are increased to around 300 (nothing else changed). But the server itself fast and cpu usage is under 20%. I think, because the cpulimit, processes in container have to wait for cpu, and linux kernel...

    LXC containers shows host's load average

    Hi, my LXC containers are showing the same load average of the host. I know this is due to some limitations of LXC and I had the same problem with CPU and memory too until some months ago. Now after some upgrades containers are showing the correct information about CPU and memory limits. Why...
