Dear list!

I did my full system backups up till now on site. This time however i
was not able to visit my remote server, so i thought no problems, lvm snapshots
to the rescue. So i snapshotted all my lv-s and started the full backup on a
slow-is ADSL-line. It is running for 6 hours now, (approx. 5 horus left.)

On to the questions:
ever since the creation of the snapshots i get theese messages in the
system log:

[date] host lvm[24978]: Another thread is handling an event. Waiting...

It comes in waves, 8-10 messages every 10-20 minutes.
The pid is allways the same. *everything* _seems_ to be normal, no problems,
or abnormal activity.

My question is:
. shall i worry?
. is this normal operational messages?
. any suggestion?

(system details:
Opensuse 11.3. Up to date.

ext3 on top of lvm on top of md-raid1
snapshot creatued using
lvcreate -s -L 4G -n "$i"snap /dev/sys/$i

Thanks in advance!
