Using LVM snapshots as backups

I’ve written a script to rotate multiple snapshots of a logical volume in Linux’s LVM as a backup mechanism. The script is meant to be run via crond and (forcibly) removes the oldest snapshot and creates a new one. It can also monitor usage of the available snapshots. Call the script with the option –help for the manpage. The script is available from this link.
