GByte are more than enough for a root file system, where usually nothing
happens but a little writing to and from /tmp and /var/tmp.

There are excellent reasons to have /tmp and /var each on separate file

Not when you use btrfs. You need them on the same partition for
snapshots to work.

Even using BtrFS you can have the snapshot mechanism with/on different file
systems. If you look at the config file (or read the man page in detail) you'll
see there is a file under /etc/snapper/configs/ for each volume.

There's also, in a parallel directory, a template, to show you how it can be


But, as I say, if you use LVM you can use snapper on any file system, ext[234],
