[PVE-User] Is it possible to use qemu Livebackup feature withProxmox?

I agree totally on that one. Since I dont’t have unlimited traffic in the datacenter, full offsite backups are not possible with PVE. Therefore I use another solution to support incremental backups for my offsite location.

Regards,
Steffen

Hi


Let me write something about PVE Backup... It's work fine... I don't complain...

But, on the other hand LiveBackup in Qemu is far away PVE Backup, since it's make incremental backup:

Livebackup - A Complete Solution for making Full and Incremental Disk Backups of Running VMs 
Livebackup provides the ability for an administrator or a management server to use a livebackup_client program to connect to the qemu process and copy the disk blocks that were modified since the last backup was taken. 




It's a feature that many people would see in Proxmox next versions...



Just a consideration...

  This wiki page is very outdated and the code never went into qemu (last edit was
  in 2011).

  But we at Proxmox implemented live backup afterwards (for qemu), this is what
  you have already in Proxmox VE since quite some time (KVM live backup), see
  http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Backup_and_Restore

  Best,

  Martin
