I have started a snapper delete command, only to find out five minutes later that it is running in the background and seems to take a longer time. Is there a command can I use to get notified when the deletions are done? (I would have expected a snapper sync.)

(Of course, next time I will simply use the provided --sync option.)

Edit: I have now tried btrfs filesystem sync /, but after this command finishes, I still see progress in consecutive df / commands.


The corresponding snapper issue "Provide a 'snapper sync' command to sync a running deletion" was categorized as "enhancement" by a snapper developer.

This means that this functionality is not available yet.
