Hello everyone,

has anyone installed CRIU in proxmox nodes to experiment live migration?

How did you do so?

I know it's not stable and I'll not install it on production. I would like to install it on my laboratory (kind of sandbox).

Any guidance would be great!

Thanks in advance

you can test the CRIU functionality using "lxc-checkpoint", by dumping a container and attempting to restore it again.

Great!

How can I dump and restore in another node? I want CRIU for attempting live lxc migration.

I'd be greatful if you could indicate me how to proceed to achieve it.

I'd test dumping and restoring first ;) you'll quickly found out why there is no live migration feature based on it in PVE yet.
