Hi,

I'm new to Proxmox and pve.
I installed pve 6.3 on an Intel Nuc with Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7260U CPU @ 2.20GHz and 8GB of ram.
After boot, everything works well but after few hours, the web GUI stops responding, either completely or after the login window.
I can ssh into the host, but most of the commands end with an Input/output error. At the time I'm writing this post, it's 10pm and most of the logs stopped logging before 1pm today.
I cannot even reboot the host. When I run the command, it hangs forever. I have to hard stop the host the restart it.
If you have any idea what can be the issue, I'll be very grateful.
Please do not hesitate to ask any log if I can provide it.
Thanks.

this sounds like a disk error. I would check the output of dmesg and take a look on smartmon output of disks

Thanks for your fast reply.
dmesg output is also Input/output error but I can read on other files like kern.log, which last output is attached at the end of the message.
smartctl (not smartmon) output is similar. I can restart the host and check output.

It seems that disk is failing. I would also check the disk cabling just in case

This is a very strange. No CRC errors, most likely it's not the cable. 99% ssd lifetime is remaining, but 20% of reserved blocks already used.

To be honest, I doubt it's the cable. It's a new NUC very little used. No reason the cable to be the issue.
So can I do something? Or do you think I need to change the drive?
Thanks anywhere for all the time spent looking to my issue.

So since I rebooted it yesterday, it's working fine. Should I check something now while it is working?

failed command: WRITE FPDMA QUEUED means most likely RAID controller issue, rebooting will reset the controller, you can check the controller log if possible to see any issue reported by controller
