Would be hard to determine what is the current configuration. To determine what is the current settings, `zfs get all zroot` for case that pool name is zroot. Pool name can include child dataset like zroot/local. To list all children, use `zfs get -r all zroot` instead. To focus on dedup `zfs get -p dedup zroot` can be better. If you want children datasets, '-r' shall be specified before '-p'. Unfortunately, this (sub)command cannot show change logs.
