comment Postgresql daily backup
Large databases would typically take a long time to dump and would most likely cause timeout-problems with logrotate. That said, I haven't actually tried it on anything larger than ~200MB databases. If you have "enough" local disk, io and CPU there's no reason it shouldn't work.
