    Struggling to get Proxmox booting via NVME on a SuperMicro server .. all help appreciated

    Or you could just install proxmox on a random SATA SSD and use the nvme for guest storage. AFAIK, nothing on the proxmox install itself is particularly performance critical.

    Bhyve vs proxmox

    Dunno about bhyve, but proxmox does the VMDKs as zvols. Maybe that sucks, performance-wise? Although 2 minutes sounds like a lot. Is this done at the CLI? I haven't used proxmox for quite awhile, but I'm wondering if they are not doing zfs snapshots, but something else?

    Is it possible to upgrade Ruckus Unleashed without an outage?

    Not that big of a deal. Just seems like there ought to be a more seamless failover, but it is what it is.

    actually, this is the splash screen: Rebuilding the Unleashed Network. It may take a few minutes. and the virtual IP is not pingable. timing it...
