pg_dump won't block writes, thanks to MVCC. It may increase bloat and it will block DDL operations (ALTER TABLE/etc), but if your database is relatively small but have high load and you need frequent backups, this may be a way to go. -- Vladimir Rusinov http://greenmice.info/
Thanks Vladimir. Would a simple script with 'pg_start_backup' and 'pg_stop_backup' and an rsync job or tar job in between would work equally well? I thought that was the better way to do it, rather than pg_dump?
