Quota support for CPU, memory and storage for VMs


Jan 18, 2022
Hi community,

we currently plan to replace our existing hypervisor infrastructure with Proxmox. One of the requirements we have is the support for quotas (cpu, memory and storage) which we would like to assign to certain (LDAP) groups in Proxmox. Our developer teams should then be able to automatically deploy VMs within these quotas.

I was not able to find any quota related support for VMs in Proxmox. Is this feature currently not available in Proxmox and if not is this feature on Proxmox's roadmap?

Best regards

AFAIK, no quota exists on the levels you asked for. I was able to get storage quota working with ZFS by setting the quota there and allow some groups only access to such a restricted dataset.


The Proxmox community has been around for many years and offers help and support for Proxmox VE, Proxmox Backup Server, and Proxmox Mail Gateway.
We think our community is one of the best thanks to people like you!
