Ext4 is faster in most tests I've seen. But ZFS has many more features. It is not just a filesystem. It also manages your disks (things like RAID, snapshots, etc). So more like Ext4 + LVM, plus it also has additional data-integrity features that are rarely found elsewhere.

I use Ext4 + LVM on my home lab setup because I'm familiar with that configuration. But lots of people swear by ZFS and of course Proxmox supports it "out of the box".

thanks for your reply

disk magnification is important to me

It is very important to show this when the disk is full, as soon as the vmware is full, I am selling a virtual server.


For example, it is important to run it when 2 TB of 1 disk is full and 1 TB is installed.


my english is a little bad i apologize
