When does the freezing happen? Is it consistently when rsnapshot is doing
a certain operation (like cp, rsync, rm)? Can you get it to freeze by
doing other work (like compiling a kernel)? For how long does it freeze?
Can you do things like having a shell echo what you type when it is "frozen"?
If you start "top" and "tail -f /var/log/rsnapshot" in separate terminals
before running rsnapshot, will they still update while you have a freezing
problem? If so, top should tell you what memory usage is like, what cpu
usage is like, what processes are using up CPU and (if you type "M") what
processes are using up most memory. The tail should tell you what
rsnapshot was doing at the time. These should give you some clues
about what to look for.
I don't suppose the freezing problem goes away if you reduce the
logging level down to 3 or 4.
