Yes, we have been doing hot backups on raw partitions since 1995 or
'96. We now use dd. In the past we also used OS vendor provided
utility. We have several different scripts, each of which is pretty
much geared to the disk layout of the system it is on and how many
concurrent streams we run. But you could pretty much copy the base
script from the manual back when we set this up.
I believe you would be better off to write your own based on your
needs, but I will email the one version I have handy if you email me
the request. It runs from a Unix Korn shell.
