Post How to freeze ext3 file system


I plan to develop a application with C for Red Hat Linux Enterprise AS2.1 platform...

The function is as follows:
- freeze the file system(ext2 or ext3)
- take the backup
- thaw the file system.

But I don't know that how to freeze the file system with ioctl or other system calls?
So I want to get some help.
Please tell me for detail usage and notice items.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Your other thread will remain open.
