We have been looking at LVM as an option for long term backup using the LVM snapshots. After looking at the various forums and also looking at a few LVM defects, realized that LVM could be a very good option for short term backup, but might result in performance issues if the snapshots are retained for a long time. Also read we should restrict the number of snapshots. We are thinking of keeping it to 3, but do you think that could also be a performance bottleneck. A few forum posts also suggest memory issues with using LVM snapshots. Can you please help with some data on that too. Thanks in advance for making our decision easier. Thanks
