ZFS Snapshot All

Recursively snapshot all zpools

Examples

Snapshot all zpools with the prefix "foo"

# ./zfs-snapshot-all foo
zfs snapshot -r goliath@foo_1448256528
zfs snapshot -r zones@foo_1448256528

Snapshot all zpools with the prefix "bar" without actually executing any snapshot commands (dry-run)

# ./zfs-snapshot-all -n bar
zfs snapshot -r goliath@bar_1448256538 # dry-run: no action taken
zfs snapshot -r zones@bar_1448256538 # dry-run: no action taken

Snapshot the pools given as arguments, "goliath", "zones", and "fake" with the prefix "foo"

# ./zfs-snapshot-all foo goliath zones fake
zfs snapshot -r goliath@foo_1448256549
zfs snapshot -r zones@foo_1448256549
zfs snapshot -r fake@foo_1448256549
cannot open 'fake': dataset does not exist
# echo $?

This script can be best used with cron for automated snapshots

1 0 * * * /opt/custom/bin/zfs-snapshot-all automated_daily   >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
2 0 * * 0 /opt/custom/bin/zfs-snapshot-all automated_weekly  >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
3 0 1 * * /opt/custom/bin/zfs-snapshot-all automated_monthly >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
4 0 1 1 * /opt/custom/bin/zfs-snapshot-all automated_yearly  >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1

And then zfs-prune-snapshots can be used to cleanup snapshots as they get too old... for example

11 0 * * * /opt/custom/bin/zfs-prune-snapshots -p automated_daily_   7d   >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
12 0 * * 0 /opt/custom/bin/zfs-prune-snapshots -p automated_weekly_  4w   >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
13 0 1 * * /opt/custom/bin/zfs-prune-snapshots -p automated_monthly_ 12M  >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
14 0 1 1 * /opt/custom/bin/zfs-prune-snapshots -p automated_yearly_  10y  >> /var/log/autosnap.log 2>&1
