during the last days there was a discussion going on about the stability
of XFS; though I myself used XFS heavily and didn't run into issues yet,
I'd like to ask something *before* we create our next generation data
Les Mikesell wrote in  about issues in the combination of XFS and LVM
-- however, it was being discussed in context of using 32bit kernels.
What I specifically need is to run XFS (or something similar, I am *not*
forced to use XFS, but it was my preference for some years now, and I
didn't have any issues with it yet) on top of LVM to be able to create
snapshots. We're talking about several file systems of a size at about
On another place  I read that there were issues with that.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Would be very appreciated.
