[SOLVED] Proxmox Server shutdowns periodically


New Member
Jun 4, 2023
I am new at Linux and especially at Proxmox.
I need help with investigating the problem of why my Proxmox server turns off periodically.

I have only 1 virtual machine and a few docker containers run on the proxmox server itself.

I cannot see anything specific in my node syslogs that can give me a tip, but honestly, I don't know what I am looking for.

Most of the time it happens when I send a request to my web application inside the virtual machine to transcode a video.

If you need any specific information that can help, please let me know.
I will be appreciated for any help that can be provided.

Thanks in Advance!

Guys, no worries. I figured out what was the reason.
CPU temperature was too high during transcoding.

In the end, it would be nice to add temperature monitoring to Proxmox.

Sorry for bothering. I hope it will help someone one day
