Professional software developer since 2006, mostly working on java backend systems.

Now moving to more dynamic languages, mostly scala (for java and the functional aspects) and python.

I am very passionate about creation, software development, philosophy and the general scientific method :)

Maybe you are interested in my skills or myself

comment Which is the physical device behind the logical /dev/___ device
Henriks answer is just what I needed. In the end is a generic way to map a (block) logical device to the actual underlying hardware

Sure, in this case I have 3 possible block devices that can be on the machine: a HDD, a SSD or a fusion IO card. I can try writing specific checks for each one of them, but I would like to go in a more generic way (at least for block devices)

Interesting aproach Schwartz. I am curious to see that in action and will play with it a while. Anyway, the application is in house and im looking for a more general solution. I like kormoc´s answer btw

Interesting, truncating the file after copying it seems quite clever, even with the data loss margin. I didnt notice this option on logrotate. Thx for the insight :)
