[Dirvish] Multiple filesystems

If you want to cross file-system boundaries, and backup everything under
'/', you want the following in your dirvish configuration file (usually

xdev: 0
tree: /

I'm doing the same (but with a tree of /home) for one of the servers I
maintain with 4 volumes for user directories.  The only thing I would be
concerned about in your case is rsync trying to read /proc, etc.  You
will most likely want to add an exclude list.
