Hi!

I have a 6 server cluster:
3 servers are hybrid nodes with a lot of OSDs and other 3 nodes are like VM processing nodes.
Everything is backed up by 2x2 port 10G NIC in hybrid nodes and 1x2 port 10G NIC un processing nodes and two stacked N3K switches.

Ceph does the thing for VM storage and cephfs is running to serve lot of small files. Cephfs is used into the VMs that are processing and storing those files on cephfs.
VMs are backed up on seperate Proxmox backup server.
So far, so good.
The question is - what would be the best way to backup cephfs content on Proxmox Backup server? This content on cephfs is pretty dynamic - older files are deleted time to time and new ones are created all the time.
Thanks in advance!

you can backup from a pve host:
proxmox-backup-client backup cephfs.pxar:/mnt/pve/cephfs --repository repxxx
