I have a build server that builds our comnay product in a continuous build method.
the build user is called
build (surprise ,surprise, i know :-) ) and most of the data that it uses is simply taken from git and svn, including the builder code itself, there are however several configuration files like our joblist and several more that are dangling out there with no real backup.
For the time being i've placed them on a private git repo on one server, we have 3 active servers.
The question i have is can i activate on ext4 (ubuntu 12.04 LTS) a 12 hours snapshot of the root of the home directory (no need for the rest) ? i know solaris used to have the ability to "go back in time" to a week or so in small snapshots of 5-10 minutes in the ops in real time, really cool :-) I was wondering if it exists with ext4 and how to use it ?
