i want to load balance and auto-migrate vms depending on resources available on a proxmox ve 2.1 cluster of say 2 nodes. is that possible ? can proxmox cluster be treated the same as a "kvm cluster" and used with pacemaker/heartbeat .. i am new to such technologies any ideas are welcome. i tried ovirt adding a node in ovirt is a pain in the butt. i am creating a test lab . i have a two pve nodes using shared iscsi lun on a separate network and another network for vms (pve nodes have two interfaces for each and two bridges i am running nested kvm two pve nodes over kvm on centos 6)

We support corosync/cman/rgmanager by default, so there is no need for (heartbeat /pacemaker). Fail-over of resources works out of the box.

IMHO these migrations are not always a good idea.

The reason you want to migrate is normally because a node in the cluster is overloaded.

Migrating adds load! So you actually make things worse by trying to fix it!
