Proxmox Cluster file system (pmxcfs) is a database-driven file system for storing configuration files, replicated in real time on all nodes using corosync. We use this to store all PVE related configuration files. Although the file system stores all data inside a persistent database on disk, a copy of the data resides im RAM. That imposes restriction on the maximal size, which is currently 30MB. This is still enough to store the configuration several thousand virtual machines.

Introduction

Proxmox Cluster file system (pmxcfs) is a database-driven file system for storing configuration files, replicated in real time on all nodes using corosync. We use this to store all PVE related configuration files. Although the file system stores all data inside a persistent database on disk, a copy of the data resides im RAM. That imposes restriction on the maximal size, which is currently 30MB. This is still enough to store the configuration several thousand virtual machines.
