    Hello,

    I have always noticed that when you compress a file or making vzdump do a negative impact on overall system performance, making bottleneck between the CPU and hard drive.
    This is so the server is down with 75% -90% io wait.

    For some time I am using RHEL virtual machines and this problem still existed, until he had this kernel update:
    http://wiki.openvz.org/Download/kernel/rhel5/028stab069.6

    The problem has been solved!
    when I do a vzdump CPU consumption is 25-30% io wait.

    We have some information to do the same in Proxmox?

    Thanks!!

    Also this one? It seems just to be a bug fix release on top of the 2.6.18-194.3.1 kernel.
