Hi. New to list, and didn't find an answer in the FAQ, or
a quick search of the archive, sorry if this resurrects a horse:
Does xfsdump -l use the journal to determine what's changed
for an incremental dump?
Background: I'm currently using rsync to perform incremental updates
of a subtree with a significant number of files, when only about 5%
changes, and the filesystem walk to check each file's timestamp
is totally unnecessary if the journal can be consulted.
If xfsdump uses the journal to avoid the walk, then using
xfsdump | xfsrestore would be ideal, except according to
the man page, it doesn't allow incrementals of subtrees. :(
Could someone explain why that is the case?
Thanks in advance for any insight,
