[PVE-User] Slow live migration in Proxmox 5

Has anyone seen migration speed drop when upgrading from Proxmox 4 to 
Proxmox 5?

I have seen at least one poor network performance issue in Proxmox 

I have one small cluster (2 nodes) with 1x10Gbit network each and I get 
migration speeds 30-40MB/s. In Proxmox 4 I got 100+MB/s, which is more 
sensible for 10Gbps. I am using openvswitch. Cluster has it's own 
network for multicast and migration.

I have replaced "migartion_unsecure: 1" with "migration: type=insecure" 
in datacenter.cfg, but this seems to have no effect. There's always 
lines in migration log: "ssh tunnel ver 1".

Only if I add both of them to datacenter.cfg I will get log saying:
"deprecated setting 'migration_unsecure' and new 'migration: type' set 
at same time! Ignore 'migration_unsecure'"

But if I remove both lines (old deprecated one and new one) I will get 
bigger speeds:
2018-10-09 11:07:24 migration speed: 136.53 MB/s - downtime 49 ms
Which is weird.

Not sure if I can update bigger cluster to Proxmox 5 now.

Has anyone else seen this?

All the best
