    Proxmox ZFS Performance Question - General Structure, PCI Passthrough and NVME SSDs

    I am currently planning to migrate to Proxmox, but would like to find out some important things before I actually take the step. Before I ask my questions, I think it is best to describe my setup/requirements: I don't run many VMs, but a few with high IOPS and consistency requirements, as I run...

    [SOLVED] Sync performance when using IP server instead of FQDN?

    According the PBS manual, HTTP/2 is used for transfer data. Does this work when using IP server for remote sync or for FDQN? Or is a FQDN a requirement for HTTP/2?

    Lessons learned about using NFS shared storage in a ProxMox environment (w/ Synology?)

    It's possible some of the following is specific to my environment... but having read a ton of threads to solve my issues, I suspect these are more general insights gained. NFS has had serious reliability problems when it comes to rebuilding broken links... until version 4.1 Before that...

    Started reading every Wiki page and a bunch of forum posts.. but the "best practices" for a stable production server are a little vague. Does anybody have any recommendations for setting for sysctl? network? Kernel tweaks? or Do I need to pay somebody for this kind of detail? and support? Is...

    Direct USB passthrough is slow, but using SPICE is fast

    Hello, I want to pass a USB device to a VM (namely a USB TV tuner for a TV server). When I do it directly by adding a USB device to the VM with the vendor/device ID, it seems as if the device is sometimes slow to respond. However, when I add a SPICE USB channel, change the display to SPICE...
