Hi

I wonder if xfsdump is an atomic operation and thus can be savely used on a live filesystem?
If not, what is the recommended way to backup a live XFS filesystem?


I guess this information would also be interessting to others, so why not include it in the paragraph about xfsdump on the XFS homepage?

Cheers
  Michael
