MySQL and LUN snapshotting
Posted by: Dean Holland

We are planning to store MySQL databases over iSCSI on a SAN that provides snapshotting of LUNs. Is there anyway to guarantee that a snapshot of MySQL will be consistent? For example if the snapshot is taken in the middle of a write to a database I would assume that this will cause problems if that snapshot was restored. Has anyone else achieved this?
