AW: svnserve & hotbackup of FSFS without user access

Actually I don't know all this discussion whether or not direct FSFS access will work.
Why not just using svnadmin hotcopy (even when you think no one is in the office), as it was told in many, many threads before?
Is there a problem with that command that I don't have heard of? ;-)

Betreff: svnserve & hotbackup of FSFS without user access

I know there have been several questions asked recently about backing
performing a hotbackup of FSFS. This one is a little different.

We are a small development company about to start using subversion.
Currently, I plan on having svnserve running as a daemon on our linux

We use the tar command to perform a backup every night onto a tape.
Since out backups are performed after midnight, we do not have
developers accessing the system; therefore, we should not have any
issues with changes occuring to the repository as the backup is performed.

My question is will the backup be "good" if svnserve is running but no
one is accessing the repository? My concern is if svnserve is somehow
holding files opened (buffered data) which is not committed to the disk.
