Hi,

I've started playing with vzdump and it reminded me that I have one question about OpenVZ: What is the difference between root and the private area?

What do I need to take in backup?

With vzdump, you have several options for taking the backup.


(without argument) -> no snapshot, just archive the VE private area and configuration files to the default dump directory

--stop (stop/start VPS if running)
--suspend (suspend/resume VPS when running)
--snapshot (Use LVM snapshot when running)

Which one is better for what kind of environment?

For example, I think that the without any arguments is ok for my VE running only SSH.

However, for my RT VE (httpd/mysql), I guess I should use --suspend or --stop to make sure the mysql data is consistent...

What is the big difference between --snapshot and --stop? The time needed for the VE to stop and boot?

Regards,
Ugo
