    [SOLVED] BTRFS Filesystem in LXC/LXD Container

    Hi, on a fresh install of Proxmox with BTRFS, I noticed that the containers install by default with a loop device formatted as ext4, instead of using a BTRFS subvolume, even when the disk is configured using the BTRFS storage backend. I'd like to use BTRFS directly, instead of using a loop...

    Removed USB disk used for backups, storage null error now

    KVM / CentOS 6.8 random hang with 100% CPU

    I have a problematic VM that randomly hangs with CPU usage pegged to the max. the load average goes 30+ and though I can ping the machine as normal, the console never responds and all users are locked out.

    LXC disk size vs. disk usage MISMATCH

    Looks like the actual disk size inside an LXC container is smaller than reported, because our containers are routinely getting full before hitting the specified disk size.
