and mdconfig(8) for the management of UFS2 snapshots.  It is
also the under-lying tool used in the periodic snapshot
scheduler periodic-snapshot(8) and the mounting/unmouning
command in the amd(8) map /usr/local/etc/ It
provides the making, expiring, visiting, mounting and

Using periodic for flexible snapshot backup creation
Edit your crontab and include this:
# Perform hourly/daily/weekly maintenance (FreeBSD UFS2/ZFS snapshots only).
0	*	*	*	*	root	/usr/local/sbin/periodic-snapshot hourly
0	0	*	*	*	root	/usr/local/sbin/periodic-snapshot daily
0	0	*	*	0	root	/usr/local/sbin/periodic-snapshot weekly
and edit your periodic.conf and include this:
# UFS2/ZFS Snapshot Creation
snapshot_schedule="/,/usr:2:1:0 /var:0:2:4 /home:2:6:8@8,12,16,20"
Using auto-mount for easy access to snapshot data

# UFS2/ZFS Snapshot Access
amd_flags="-a /.am -c 1800 -w 60 -l syslog /snap /usr/local/etc/"
