Creates a snapshot of the disks for a virtual system.
This command creates a snapshot of the disk images for a virtual system, which can be later reverted to using the revert-snapshot command. The system must be specified with the
--host flag followed by a full hostname.
Each snapshot has a unique ID, set with the
--id flag - for example, something like before-upgrade. You must also supply the
--percent flag, followed by a number between 1 and 100. This determines what percentage of the host's disk space is used by the snapshot logical volumes. The size is a tradeoff between disk usage and the number of changes that the snapshot can store - setting the percent too low can result in a snapshot that eventually becomes unusable.
