'svnadmin dump' is exactly the same as doing a checkout of every
revision. So yes, it's perfectly safe to run on a live repository.

'svnadmin hotcopy' is exactly the same as:

  1. cp -R repos repos-backup
  2. cp -R repos/db/log* repos-backup/db/
  3. svnadmin recover repos-backup

...and this can also be run on a live repository.
