Yes, something like VMWare's DRS would be great to have. For now I "load balance" by hand when I get a load alert
on a host, or when a client complains that the VM is slow. I was thinking of automating that through the API,
I already have an external tool to manage routing the IPs depending on where the VM is running, guess it'd be
easy enough to query the ram or CPU and try to move VMs, but that'd require some heavy testing that I don't have
the time for right now.
It's on my todo though, as long as Proxmox doesn't come up with something similar in the meantime.
