Summary0000565: use btrfs features to efficiently detect changed files
Descriptionbtrfs (a default filesystem on SLES 12) provides features to generate a list of changed files between snapshots. This can be useful for Bareos to efficiently generate the file lists for Incremental and Differential backups.
Additional Informationbtrfs send operation compares two subvolumes and writes a description of how to convert one subvolume (the parent subvolume) into the other (the sent subvolume).
btrfs receive does the opposite.

SLES 12 comes the the tool snapper, which provides an abstraction for this functionality (and should work in the same way for LVM and ext4?).
