Thread: creating dump from xfs lvm snap

  1. #1

    Default creating dump from xfs lvm snap

    is there a way to let zrm create a "real" sql dump out of the lvm snap? regarding to the documentation zrm should envoke xfs_freeze before creating the snapshot, but i was not able to find any option or something in in the zrm scripts which starts xfs_free before creating the lvm snapshot? am i missing something?

    LVM2 calls filesystem freeze operation when a snapshot is created. LVM1 did not and filesystem
    freeze operation has to be called manually.

    ZRM has been tested with LVM2 only.
