Hello everyone,

i've a running proxmox server and rented a pbs access from a service provider for backups.
Everything was absolutely fine with it.
But now after some time and a lot of more backups, i've the following problem.

i get communication failure (0)" (somtimes a "Connection timed out (596) really seldom) when i try to "list" the backups via gui.
If i list the repository via cli, its working and takes about 40 seconds to list all backups.

Is there any solution for the gui timeout or am i doing something wrong?

Best regards
Ralph

Hi, how many backups are we talking about here? Maybe you can reorganize the backups into namespaces so that not all of them have to be fetched/listed from a single api call? See https://pbs.proxmox.com/docs/storage.html#backup-namespaces
 
Hi Chris,

thank you very much for the fast reply :)
after checking i recognized that we have really a lot of backups in the same name-space :(
thought we set it up with different namespaces but i was wrong.

is it possible to move existing backups into different namespaces? (sorry if its another dumb question)

Best regards
Ralph
 
You could do this by creating the namespace and then moving the backups via a local since job.
