Documentation

zsnapper

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

Builds

https://github.com/calmh/zsnapper/releases

Installation

  • 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.
