Maintain and replicate ZFS snapshots

Maintain and replicate ZFS snapshots

zap automates the management of zfs snapshots. With a few, simple crontab entries, it can be used to create a comprehensive zfs backup system. There are no configuration files. All parameters are supplied on the command line or in zfs properties and all snapshot information is stored in snapshot names.

zap plays nice with manually created snapshots or snapshots from other tools. It will only operate on snapshots it creates.
