  1. Add a configuration to the slaves configuration page that allows you to suspend VMs that exceed a certain level of load and leave the choice for the admin to choose the action (suspend or reboot or shut down the VM.

  2. The function has already been implemented and works great however for many of us with multiple PoP's the option to set this on/off on a per node basis would be a significant improvement, in Europe and the USA Bandwidth use is rarely a concern however in Asia Pacific regions this could get incredibly costly.

    Currently it is global for all slaves/nodes regardless of location and it would allow us to give a much better and fitting service to customers if we could chose which nodes this applies too.

  3. Currently the only way to enable quick backup for containers is to run the script in the solusvm DOCS occasionally however this really should be enabled at the point of container creation.

    Please consider updating SolusVM to incorporate that.

  4. Please consider adding the ability for end users to enable certain modules themselves e.g. FUSE/GRE/NFS/QUOTA this is already available for ppp and TUN/TAP and would save a great deal of manual admin work as well as give a more fluid end user experience.

  5. When new order is being placed at WHMCS for KVM VPS, password entered by client is not automatically send to SolusVM from WHMCS hence client could not login with their entered password.

  6. it would be a good idea if we can create a container with solusvm using a glusterfs storage?

    i had create this and getting and error ?

    ]# vzctl create 102 --ostemplate centos-7-x8664 --config basic
    Creating image: /vz/private/102.tmp/root.hdd/root.hdd size=52428800K
    Creating delta /vz/private/102.tmp/root.hdd/root.hdd bs=2048 size=104857600 sectors v2
    Error in do
    createdelta (ploop.c:377): Can't open /vz/private/102.tmp/root.hdd/root.hdd: Invalid argument
    Failed to create image: Error in do
    create_delta (ploop.c:377): Can't open /vz/private/102.tmp/root.hdd/root.hdd: Invalid argument [1]

  7. Please add console and serial to the autogenerated config so that admins can use
    virsh console vpsname

    Solus uses KVM as backend and should not limit its features.

    Currently one gets greeted with
    error: internal error: cannot find character device <null>

    Placing full XML config that includes serial and console in every VPS via Solus web panel to overcome this limitation is awkward.

  9. Consider to optimize MySQL queries for SolusVM database.

    The two examples below:

    1. Index on vserverid field in bandwidthstatistics table can improve performance of the cron script for bandwidth reset scheduled task

    2. If there are about 55 pages of IP Blocks, 64 IPs per block it cannot render the page with pagination 'All' due to timeout that caused by intensive mysql query.

  10. With the last few intel CPU issues it would be beneficial for rapid mitigation to be able to set on a node basis some cpu flags that are automatically put in to all XML config files for every guest VM either newly created or upon reboot from the panel.

  11. The current templates are outdated. I don't think that your customers should be creating and managing basic templates (e.g. that includes disk resize, networking and the hostname).

    We are now told by your support that if one of these is missing, in our case setting the hostname, we have to create our own template. That doesn't make sense. SolusVM should provide the right (basic) templates.

  12. Currently, only the primary filesystem is backed up during the auto FTP backup process. All filesystems added to a Virtual Machine should be included in the backup, or an option should be added to include the secondary file systems.

  13. A method of auto configuring IPv6 for windows virtual servers as it already works for Linux would be beneficial.

  15. Currently you can create templates through command line on the hypervisor, though I run I to issues sometimes when I use it. I think a great tool to have would be one where you can select a VM and it would automatically create a gen 1/2 template from it through the admin panel.

  16. If you have reserved an IPv6 subnet you can't change the reverse DNS of an IP in that range. We would like to be able to set reverse DNS for the physical machines in our network with IPv6.

  17. It would be better to delete all DNS records associated with a VM when the VM has been deleted

  18. We have done a lot of customizations in the admin backend, e.g. we integrated a note field at the IP list so we know directly why a IP is marked as reserved.

    Currently, it is hard to make customizations. All our customizations are done via javascript since all admin template files are encrypted.
    We have placed the javascript code into the existing solusvm js files and these customizations get lost during update.

    So i would like to see a better way to integrate own code into the admin backend.

    I have 2 ideas:

    1. A javascript and CSS directory in which…

  19. It would be useful if we could see the changes in the bootstrap client template before updating.

    I think github would be a good place for that. There should also be notes in the release notes if there were changes in the template.

  20. It would be great if we could create override language files.

    Then we would not have to save the language file before every update, check for changes and then restore the custom language adjustments.
