[linux-lvm] snapshots and nfs

I'm trying to create snapshots on a volume whose filesystem is mounted
over nfs on multiple webservers.  lvcreate is hanging trying to
suspend the volume, and I suspect that the problem is that it is being
used by the webservers.  Does this sound like a reasonable theory?  If
so, is there a way to have lvcreate not suspend the volume?  I'm using
xfs, so I should be able to freeze the filesystem.

Thanks for any advice,
