Veeam Agent for Linux - Considerations and Limitations

Veeam Agent for Linux 6.1

blksnap kernel module

In addition to the veeamsnap kernel module, Veeam Agent for Linux 6 introduced the blksnap kernel module for use on newer Linux kernels. Both modules are used for the same purpose (snapshot creation).

  • Veeamsnap module is supported up to Linux kernel 5.18
  • The Blksnap module is supported for Linux kernels starting from 5.10

The default installed module is listed in the Details column for each supported distribution and version.
