I continue to prepare my migration from OMV to Proxmox with OMV as VM, and I have a question for the clever guys (you! ) who are already using OMV+proxmox.
Proxmox has no option in its GUI to set any powersaving feature. It even runs the performance governor by default. So, for a home server (expected to be idle 70% of the time) where 'Green IT' and power consumption matter,
- have you looked at how much power OMV+Proxmox consumes versus OMV alone, notably when idle?
- is there anything you change to lower power consumption?
Just for info, my OMV box (Ryzen 2700, 16Go RAM, 4 active SSD and one mostly-sleeping HD) consumes 27W at idle at the wall and 70W at full load (real power, with cos phi : 41W / 80W).
