Dear all,
 
All the while I was doing pg_dump as backup method for my pgsql db.
Today I came across File system level backup on Postgresql
Documentation.
 
After reading it, I am quite unsure whether File system level backup is
better than pg_dump. 
 
Furthermore, do we really need to do File system level backup or pg_dump
is good enough?
 
Any suggestion is much appreciated.
 
Regards,
ganesh
