ZSys

ZSys daemon and client for zfs systems

Code quality Go Report Card codecov License

ZSys is a Zfs SYStem tool targeting an enhanced ZOL experience.

It allows running multiple ZFS systems in parallel on the same machine, get automated snapshots, managing complex zfs dataset layouts separating user data from system and persistent data, and more.

Documentation

You can find a whole series of blog posts explaining in details the internals and goals of ZSys.

Usage

User commands

zsysctl

ZFS SYStem integration control zsys daemon

Synopsis

Zfs SYStem tool for an enhanced ZFS on Linux experience. It allows running multiple ZFS system in parallels on the same machine, get automated snapshots, managing complex zfs dataset layouts separating user data from system and persistent data, and more.

zsysctl COMMAND [flags]
Options
  -h, --help            help for zsysctl
  -v, --verbose count   issue INFO (-v) and DEBUG (-vv) output

zsysctl completion

Generates completion scripts (will attempt to automatically detect shell)

Synopsis

To load completions: NOTE: When shell type isn't defined shell will be automatically identified based on the $SHELL environment vairable

Bash:

$ source <(zsysctl completion bash)

To load completions for each session, execute once:

Linux:

$ zsysctl completion bash > /etc/bash_completion.d/zsysctl

macOS:

$ zsysctl completion bash > /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/zsysctl

Zsh:

If shell completion is not already enabled in your environment,

you will need to enable it. You can execute the following once:

$ echo "autoload -U compinit; compinit" >> ~/.zshrc

To load completions for each session, execute once:

$ zsysctl completion zsh > "${fpath[1]}/_zsysctl"

You will need to start a new shell for this setup to take effect.

PowerShell:

PS> zsysctl completion powershell | Out-String | Invoke-Expression

To load completions for every new session, run:

PS> zsysctl completion powershell > zsysctl.ps1

and source this file from your PowerShell profile.
