PVE Web UI fails to load on poor network


Jul 21, 2020

I'm experiencing issues loading the PVE Web UI of a remote home server to which I have a somewhat poor connection.

To be more specific:
I'm running a remote home server, which gets internet over a mobile network connection with quite bad upload. I have a site-to-site WireGuard tunnel configured to access the remote network and home server. I can access everything running there just fine - if slowly - like a Home Assistant, OPNsense, UniFi-Controller, except for the PVE Web UI.
I can sometimes load it, but most of the times it just fails to load. This then looks like this:

On Firefox I can't see any GET-request issues, but I see varying JavaScript errors.

On Chromium I see GET-request issues with net::ERR_CONTENT_LENGTH_MISMATCH 200 (OK) and then also JavaScript errors.

I'm also pretty sure, I didn't have those problems like a year ago, tho this might not necessarily be on Proxmox, but maybe network conditions changed.

Also of note is that I can't reproduce those issues by going into the browsers network simulation, it only happens in the real world.
