  • Recent home project: ZFS NAS server

    July 2, 2007

    June 20, 2007

    The following comes to you from Ralf Ramge, who has graciously allowed me to post his script and all the instructions below: “I have a small update.

  • Super-simple perl script for zfs snapshots

    June 1, 2007

    Here’s a simple script for creating daily zfs snapshots that get rotated every week (so you always have one for Mon, Tues, Wed, etc) #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $zfsname = shift || die “Need a filesystem name\n”; my $day = `date`; $day =~ s/(Sun|Mon|Tue|Wed|Thu|Fri|Sat)[\S\s]+/$1/gi; my $snapname = “$zfsname\@$day”; my $exist = system(“zfs list […]
