The man page says:
xfs_metadump should only be used to copy unmounted filesystems, read-
only mounted filesystems, or frozen filesystems (see xfs_freeze(8)).  
Otherwise, the generated dump could be inconsistent or corrupt.

I tried to use it nevertheless, but it doesn't run at all:
xfs_metadump: /dev/orionStore/data contains a mounted and writable 
filesystem
fatal error -- couldn't initialize XFS library

So the wording should better be
xfs_metadump can only be used to copy unmounted filesystems, read-only 
mounted filesystems, or frozen filesystems (see xfs_freeze(8)).  It 
refuses to work with r/w mounted filesystems.
