Hello,

I'm having a problem when using pveproxy to limit which IPs can access to Proxmox admin web interface

Everything works just fine. However after some time, there are too much processes pveproxy worker, which take a lot of CPU usage (100% in reality)
Sometime I cannot even access to the admin web interface because of it.

It can be temporarily fixed by restarting pveproxy, but i don't know if there are some better ways to resolve this problem.

I'm using Proxmox Virtual Environment 6.3-2.

Thanks in advance.

how is the limit configured?

anything indicating what the problem is in the system journal?
(let `journalctl -f` run when the issues happen)

any particular entries in the pveproxy access log? (`/var/log/pveproxy/access.log`)

I'm using Proxmox Virtual Environment 6.3-2.
please upgrade to the latest version - if it is a bug in the code it could have been fixed by now

I hope this helps!
