I am a proxmox beginner.
I want to share "lucene index (4Go) " on local directory between one VM (the producer: Writer) and other Vms ( consumers: Reader) on the same hypervisor.
It is possible ?
If yes what is the best proxmox configuration (file systeme and protocol) ?
Thank's a lot.

Best regard's

some options:
* network storage (NFS, CIFS, etc.)
* device passthrough (pass a device directly to the VM, though it inhibits migration)

probably network storage is the better option.
Yes but, with NFS the performance is very bag.
Peaks with over 300 read requets by second and 30 write request by second.
May be is better with GLUSTER FS and DRDB. Or other shared storage

best regards,

you can use any shared storage for this purpose, there's no clear answer. i'd suggest you set up whatever you're more comfortable with
