Hello all,
I read with great interest the archived postings about the use XFS over
LVM and snapshotting the PGDATA dirs for backups.  However I saw on
XFS's mailing list on May 13th that Murthy said that they now don't use
that procedure and instead rsync, xfs_freeze (to freeze), rsync,
xfs_freeze (to unfreeze).

Anyone else having problems with lvm and snapshots?
