Snapshot creation is taking over FIVE hours and still counting!

Posted August 27, 2014 2.5k views

Over five hours for a snapshot to be taken is simply hours to much. This is very frustrating, i have to get back online NOW! Fiver hours or however long it takes is just not good enough, especially when we can’t cancel the task, the server is just locked and down. I’ve written a support ticket an hour ago and marked it truly urgent, and there is still no answer to that either. This is practically unacceptable!

  • I wonder why cant a a snapshot be taken on fly :(

    My server is running with live website and its not possible to shut it down for a snapshot..

    I have seen snapshot do take a while, not as long as 5 hours, but 15 to 20 mins !!

    Shutting it down for 30 mins is bit of a loss in user and thus revenue
