Ok, thanks for the good input... helpful as always .. both posts
About auto snapshots... I've just returned to my tinkering with oi,
after a prolonged absence and have seemingly forgotten nearly every
little bit I learned last time. My pea brain doesn't hold much but
even that is looking quite sparse... he he.
I do recall over multiple tinkerings over a few yrs, having
considerable trouble with that service.
Right now, checking with 'svcs -xv' the only thing comes up is about
the smb service... so apparently right now the auto snap stuff is
running ok and this confirms it:
legacy_run Mar_19 lrc:/etc/rc2_d/S72autoinstall
online Mar_19 svc:/system/filesystem/zfs/auto-snapshot:daily
online Mar_19 svc:/system/filesystem/zfs/auto-snapshot:weekly
online Mar_19 svc:/system/filesystem/zfs/auto-snapshot:monthly
online Mar_19 svc:/system/filesystem/zfs/auto-snapshot:hourly
online Mar_19 svc:/system/filesystem/zfs/auto-snapshot:frequent
So yeah, the auto services would be a big relief, and set to snarf off
the oldies after a set number I guess.
