    [SOLVED] VM crash by limited storage for vzdump

    For several days we were struggling with a VM crash during the night. Unfortunately this VM is currently a SPOF, causing a lot of problems.

  5. [SOLVED] Backup and Restore Much Larger

    I found this odd. I had an old Server with 2 x 1 TB SSDs setup. One Nvme and one Sata SSD setup as a Raid ZFS 1 or mirror. The Storage pool I setup with ZFS mirror is a little smaller than the new server, but contains way more VM Disks but takes up less space. It's weird. Can somebody help...
  6. LXC backup fails - unable to open the dataset 'vzdump'.

    Hi, I have noticed this issue where all of my LXC fail to backup while all of the the VMs do backup successfully. This is similar to This Thread which has been marked "Solved", though that sounds like a workaround. This is the error I am seeing: INFO: Starting Backup of VM 110 (lxc) INFO...

  10. Verifying and changing te Compression Level of Backups

    I just found out I can use pigz instead of gzip. Now I can use the higher compression without extending the time of running backups. In GZIP you can define a Compressions-Level of 9 but default is 6. How can I see which compression level I am currently using with vzdump and how can I change...

  15. Untar vzdump file for better deduplication

    Hello everyone, I'm testing borgbackup to copy our backups to some off-site storage. With the normal tar file and following ones, the deduplication isnt as effective as it could be. When I extract the vzdump and inserting every file one by one its much more space efficient. My question is now...

    ZFS snapshots and replication: Sufficient as backup?

    Hi all, We are currently running a PVE cluster with multiple machines and serve about 15 LXC containers and 10 VMs. We are using PVE replication (every 15min) to onsite PVE machines and znapzend to create hourly snapshots that are also replicated off site. This should protect us against a...
