Hi,

I am currently looking to use proxmox for my cluster but i have some consernes..

can i put all the cpu power, memory power on a single pool so for exemple i can use 4core on one node and 2core on an other node and for memory i use 4GB on 1 node and 1GB on an other node. is it something possible?

PS: if there is some documentation on the subject i would like to know please. i am fairly new to clustering

thank you in advence everyone

I'm not sure if your question is really regarding the Proxmox Mail Gateway - but if yes:
* check the minimal system requirements in the reference documentation (1G ram is too little for clamav) - https://pmg.proxmox.com/pmg-docs/pmg-admin-guide.html#system_requirements
(The requirements are for _each_ installed node - not for the complete cluster)

The nodes don't need to have the same specs - but depending on your use-case in generally all of them should be able to handle the same amount of mails...

I hope this helps to get you started!

Hi,

thank you for the replie but unfortunatly its not about the Mail Gateway. its more about building a normal cluster. For exemple, if i have 2 CPU with 4 cores and 4 thread each. can i start a vm that needs 5 cores and 6 threads. is it something proxmox can do?
