[DRBD-user] Full LVM Snapshots

Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


according to the DRBD Users Guide, a full snapshot can cause the origin to fail.
"A full snapshot causes both the snapshot itself and its origin volume to fail."

Our experience is, that the origin can be used without interruption.

Any experiences in which situations the origin can get into trouble when a snapshot gets full?

Thank you,
