Sorry if this is a daft question, but I thought swap was used if the system was low on ram. My ram usage is generally pretty good:
But my swap upsate is always really high?
Is this something I should worry about?
I'm posting here something I noticed on Proxmox 8.0.4 about Swap and Swapiness on Debian 12. Here is the configuration of my Proxmox VE node :
4 x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz (1 Socket) (4 cores)
16 GB of RAM
6TB available (Raid 10 on 6*2TB Hard Disk)
BTRFS Storage to...
Referring to the screenshot about - my dual Xeon server has 256 GB of DDR4-2400 ECC Reg. RAM installed.
I have about 10 VMs running right now, and it shows that it has about 170 GiB of RAM available.
I have set ZFS to only use upto 32 GiB of RAM for ZFS cache.
May I enquire as to why Proxmox...
I have a cluster of proxmox 7 from 4 nodes, sometimes I see the swap usage for some container is 190%. I gave the container 512M swap and it is using 970M, and the memory usage on the container is 10%
how the container take swap larger than the value I specified
also I see a VM usage around...
one of my nodes has high swap usage when I run backups at night.
The backup starts at 10pm and takes around 7 minutes for 5 LXCs and 4 VMs.
Physical memory even drops around that time. Other nodes behave fine while doing backups.
Any idea on why that is happening?
Hello for everyone, I have an standalone node with 380 GB RAM and CPU usage is normal, 20 CT and 15 VM with Promox 6.3.6, I don't have IO delay. I just now I'm trying to configure a new CT, but I found that the container doesn't have SWAP memory (I did that setup with 2 Gb) so when I start to...
I solved this, it was a Virus!
I was able to remove it with the help of this article.
I have proxmox installed on a server that has a AMD® Ryzen™ 5 3600 6c/12t @3.60GHz, 64 GB RAM and 2 x 480 GB NVME.
On it there is 1 Windows 2019 Server running, 1 Ubuntu server and a owncloud cluster...
For one of our VMs we allocated around 30 GB RAM. Every time we check the usage of resources, using htop, we see that the SWAP memory is always at 100%. Here is a picture:
We are not sure this is normal behavior Even our swap memory in the proxmox GUI, the one for the entire...
Hi guys! Few days ago I've noticed that SWAP on 1 of 5 hosts was loaded for 100%. On this host I used command swapoff -a && swapon -a and everything was OK. But today situation repeated. How to solve this situation? I can't every 3-4 days disable than again enable swap.
