Help with mylvmbackup and LV partition requirements



I'm trying to use mylvmbackup with the following LVM configuration under
Ubuntu 8.04

/prod  is a mount point for MySQL Binary, Data and Logs  (this is mapped to
/dev/mapper/slash-produce) which in turn is the logical volume

# lvdisplay

  --- Logical volume ---
  LV Name                /dev/slash/produce
  VG Name                slash
  LV UUID                L5Qvi2-XxXO-LZvm-QoZU-xCMg-GE0J-U5Rb0f
  LV Write Access        read/write
  LV Status              available
  # open                 1
  LV Size                100.00 GB
  Current LE             25600
  Segments               1
  Allocation             inherit
  Read ahead sectors     0
  Block device           253:1

Given the command options I'm using the following syntax

./mylvmbackup --user=*** --password=*** --host=*** --vgname=slash

It seems a little wrong but appears to work, is my understanding correct?
