    Hi All,

    I have upgraded proxmox 1.9 to 2.0, and it's working, but I have a problem with vzdump.

    In 1.9 my daily backup log was:

    [FONT=Geneva, Arial, Helvetica]

    So there is a big difference between (1.46 MiB/s)and (34.64 MiB/s). :confused: and "archive file size: 13.65GB" and "archive file size: 1.34GB"

    I don't have any idea what can I do and what I did wrong.

    There are not any modification on KVM, or any hardware change my machine. What can I do?

    The restore time of this KVM approx. 10 hours :(

    Please help me!

    Thx,

    Try to use 'lzo' instead of 'gzip'
