Zsnapper automatically creates ZFS snapshots on a specified schedule, while also removing old snapshots as required.




  • Untar the distribution.
  • Copy and modify etc/zsnapper.yml.sample.
  • Run zsnapper -c path-to-config-file -v and observe output.

For Solaris installations, a sample SMF manifest is in etc/site-zsnapper.xml. It assumes an installation under /opt/local/zsnapper but is easily modified for other locations.




  • Install Go
  • go get github.com/constabulary/gb/...
  • gb build

The bundled script build.sh creates distribution packages, assuming the above requirements are met.
