[PVE-User] VM temporary blackouts

Hi happy pve-users,

Since we moved our kvm hosts inside a proxmox cluster, we are 
experiencing some unexplained glitches in some VMs responsiveness.

It happens that a VM does not respond anymore to pings, ssh, and even 
when connected with an interactive session through SSH, it's as if the 
machine freezes.

Do someone have a hint to help me debug this behaviour ?
I increased the frequency of the nagios tests to spot those glitches 
more accurately.

We run proxmox 2.1-14. As far as I know, there is no backup for this VM, 
and there was no live migration.
