Backups with Linux Logical Volume Manager

  View Printable Version 
GNU/LinuxLVM is an implementation of a logical volume manager for the Linux kernel. The biggest advantage is that LVM provides the ability to make a snapshot of any logical volume.

In a production environment many users access the same file (file is open) or database. Suppose you start a backup process when a file is open, you will not get correct or updated copy of file i.e. inconsistent backup.

This article covers both old (read-only) partition and LVM snapshot methods to make a consistent backup.
