... In short, is it possible to add "restartability" to ZFS SEND, for example by adding artificial snapshots (of configurable increment size) into already existing datasets [too large to be zfs-sent successfully as one chunk of stream data]?
On a side note: would this feature, like any other nice-to-have feature in ZFS, require The Mythical Block Pointer Rewrite (TM)? For no apparent reason yet, I'm already afraid so ;) If this is the Holy Grail which everybody craves and nobody saw, what is really the problem of making it happen? Some time ago I skimmed through an overview of "what would have to be done for it". Not being a hardcore ZFS programmer I did not grasp what is so fundamentally difficult about the quest. So I still wonder if it is impossible, or if anyone is already working on it quietly? ;) //Jim _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
