[TUTORIAL] Docker image for Proxmox Load Balancer

I personally operate a hyper converged cluster on Proxmox and was looking for a solution to implement load balancing for VMs and LXC in my environment. In the process, I came across this project https://github.com/cvk98/Proxmox-memory-balancer which covers exactly what I want to achieve. I tested this script right away in an LXC container on my PVE 8.0.x cluster.

After some testing, I found it to be very good and looked to see if there was already a maintained Docker image for it, as I myself run Docker on Proxmox and have several hosts for it, and I didn't want to run another dedicated LXC or even a VM just for this script, but to my disappointment, there wasn't one available.

Therefore, I made it my task to create such an image and maintain it, which can be found here https://hub.docker.com/r/thealhu/proxmox-load-balancer

Of course, the entire code for the image is open source and can be adapted by anyone.
I hope that some people find this useful and therefore wanted to share it here in the forum.

Best regards, alhu
