before starting a filebased backup with rdiff-backup I stop Cyrus,
create LVM snaps of partitions where /var/lib/cyrus/ and /var/lib/cyrus
are located and start Cyrus again. The downtime of Cyrus is just a few
seconds, but is there a way to avoid stopping Cyrus before creating the
snaps or is this the safest method to flush all data and get a
consistent status of data and databases?
