I have two virtual machine templates, one for a few seconds and the other for a few minutes. Is there any way to improve the cloning speed

hi,

did you mean to post this in the Proxmox VE forum? (this subforum is for Proxmox Mail Gateway)

two virtual machine templates, one for a few seconds and the other for a few minutes. Is there any way to improve the cloning speed
cloning speed depends on various factors:
* size of the disk to be cloned
* IO speed of the storages that are being read/write to
* overall load on host can also affect it

without any information about your templates or storage devices, it's hard to make a recommendation.
