Default Live backup

Hello I have small hosting server with some jails. All data like mysql and websites,email store are backed up to ftp weekly.
But I have an externl drive I intend to dump too.

Cant really stop any thing so it will have to be a live dump

dump -h0 -0Lauf /mnt/usb/backups/usr.dump /usr
I have a /usr/backup folder I dont want dumping hence the -h0
The /usr is about 100GB or more so while dump takes a snap I guess the server is going to grind to a stop any way. This is a remote server so the plan is in a disaster I could boot off the cd setup the disk ( via ip kvm ) and restore the dumps from the external drive saving me a shed load of setting stuff. I would also be much happy about remote upgrades with some dump files.
But is there a less intensive way so every thing doesnt grind to a halt.
