a version of kcore gets backed up

Description

I have ntp running and discovered it creates the file /var/lib/ntp/proc/kcore. This file is a large file and becomes a biggiefile in mondo and so it gets backed up. If I turn off ntp during the backup that file is not there.

I think normally /proc/kcore is automagically skipped.

Replying to JeffS:

You can avoid that by adding a -E "/var/lib/ntp/proc" to your call of mondoarchive.

I think normally /proc/kcore is automagically skipped.

Too dep /proc mounted FS are not yet backed up. I need to see why the limit of the find command is maxdepth 3

Just a note - see: http://forums.novell.com/novell-product-support-forums/suse-linux-enterprise-server-sles/sles-configure-administer/342245-giant-kcore-file.html

the ntp/proc is because ntp is chroot and needs it's own proc system. kcore is a memory image/access. All of ntp/proc should be skipped, I believe.

Just searching for the same question.

Should be solved by rev [2184]. Will be in 2.2.9.
