To enable automatic snapshots, place lines such as these into /etc/crontab:
15,30,45 * * * * root /usr/local/sbin/zfs-auto-snapshot frequent  4
0        * * * * root /usr/local/sbin/zfs-auto-snapshot hourly   24
7        0 * * * root /usr/local/sbin/zfs-auto-snapshot daily     7
14       0 * * 7 root /usr/local/sbin/zfs-auto-snapshot weekly    4
28       0 1 * * root /usr/local/sbin/zfs-auto-snapshot monthly  12
This will keep 4 15-minutely snapshots, 24 hourly snapshots, 7 daily snapshots,
4 weekly snapshots and 12 monthly snapshots. Any resulting zero-sized snapshots
will be automatically cleaned up.
Enable snapshotting on a dataset or top-level pool with:
zfs set com.sun:auto-snapshot=true DATASET
Children datasets can be disabled for snapshot with:
zfs set com.sun:auto-snapshot=false DATASET
Or for specific intervals:
zfs set com.sun:auto-snapshot:frequent=false DATASET
See website and command usage output for further details.
