abgleich shows local and remote ZFS dataset trees / zpools. It creates meaningful snapshots only if datasets have actually been changed. It compares a local dataset tree to a remote, backup dataset tree. It pushes backups to remote. It cleanes up older snapshot on local system. Runs from the command line and produces nice, user-friendly, readable, colorized output.


  • FIX: Development installs with make install do no longer fail, see #17.
  • FIX: Python up to 3.7.1 does not handle type checks for OrderedDict properly and either causes exceptions or crashes. Fixed with workaround, see #16.


Installation instructions are available on Github.
