Hi – sorry to bother everything with this thread however I’m just looking for maybe best practice advice
XCP-7.6 installed on Protectli device (intel i5, 16Gb Ram)
XCP-ng hypervisor running two VMs (pfsense (4Gb RAM dedicated), Ubuntu running XO (4Gb RAM dedicated)).
I’ve had a very mixed experience with this setup. Either the host (xcp-ng) or pfSense VM will completely lockup anywhere from 2-3 times per week. I’ve described this problem numerous times on the xcp-ng forum and really haven’t gotten anywhere. I installed netdata on dom0 and unfortunately this really hasn’t help provide any useful information as to why the device (dom0) or pfsense locks up. If it’s only the VM I can restart the toolstack, however if its the dom0, I have to actually manually power cycle the device to get it to work. Lock ups are intermittent and I don’t know really where to go from here – perhaps its a hardware issue – perhaps not – however I’m not sure how to even debug a hardware issue if there was one present.
I’m contemplating just reinstalling everything from scratch – I like the features of xcp-ng but I’m not certain maybe I should try another hypervisor. I’m using this for home use so I have some flexibility to try things. Perhaps I should just install pfsense directly on the protectli – however given the hardware on the box that is an awful expensive router. Looking for some advice at this juncture.
