I have my database backed up to an EBS drive. My current backup method is
1) queue all writes (not important how)
2) kill database process
3) detach + umount ebs volume
4) take snapshot
5) reattach AFTER snapshot is complete
My question is, the snap actually takes a while, can I re-attach my EBS while my EC2 snapshot is in the pending state, or do I risk corruption / data lose?
