How can I best put snapshots of LXD on a separate (slower) btrfs volume?
Probably I cannot simply symlink /var/lib/lxd/snapshots/ to the other btrfs volume, can I?
I guess that could bring problems since /var/lib/lxd is on the fast btrfs volume so the snapshots will probably be generated as subvolumes of that volume.

Of course the most elegant solution would be to have this done by the fs itself as suggested here: https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Project_ideas#Hybrid_Storage
But that may take a while...

So for the time being I am looking into ways to store my snapshots away from the fast disks on slower and cheaper disks.
