[rdiff-backup-users] Examples for whole-system backup

Hello all,

My friend recommend rdiff-backup so I am currently researching it for my backup solution.  I am brand new to the system so please forgive me for any dumb questions.

What I am looking for is a FreeBSD backup solution that will duplicate my multiple mission-critical servers to a remote system in case something goes bad.  In case something bad does happen, I’d like to invoke a command and be able to restore the entire system back, not having to do a rebuild then copy files back as that will have a longer downtime.

Is rdiff-backup the correct solution for my use case?  If so, does anyone have any information on whole-system level backup examples / documentations?  I have read documentations on the site already, but they mostly talk about directories.  I am sure there are caveats when one’s backing up complete system.

Thanks in advance.
