Wired uptime problem with LXC Containers


Mar 14, 2013
Hi all out there,

today it happened again - I've found out some strange behaviour in Proxmox 4 with LXC Containers. Container is running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS all updates applied, Node is running Proxmox, all patches applied:

proxmox-ve: 4.2-54 (running kernel: 4.4.8-1-pve)

Please have a look at uptime output and on performance metrices - they're quite different and container was not restartet.

I've no idea why this happens but it seems to be independent from which kernel is currently being used. I experience this already since long time but only found time now to document it here.

Thanks for help
