hi guys,

I have 2 similar env only difference betwen it's proxmox version one it's 5.4-3 and other one it's 5.2-1

My flow is:
-stop vm
-clone to another
-start both
I use ext4 mount directory on both
Both virtual disk have 50gb
Same amount of ram and same cpu

Well on 5.4 take to finish clone procces like 15-20 min and on 5.2 need only 5-8 min
Where it's the problem?
