[pve-devel] [PATCH v2] Added parallel gzip compress support for vzdump with pigz.

Thomas Lamprecht t.lamprecht at proxmox.com
Tue Jul 14 09:31:38 CEST 2015


Added two options in vzdump.conf to controll pigz. 'usepigz' (default to false) to enable it
and 'pigzthreads' (defaults to #cores/2) to control how many threads pigz use.
To use it select gzip in the web interface and set usepigz: 1 in /etc/vzdump.conf
