ZFS-BOOKMARK(8) System Manager's Manual ZFS-BOOKMARK(8)

create bookmark of ZFS snapshot

zfs bookmark snapshot|bookmark newbookmark

Creates a new bookmark of the given snapshot or bookmark. Bookmarks mark the point in time when the snapshot was created, and can be used as the incremental source for a zfs send.
When creating a bookmark from an existing redaction bookmark, the resulting bookmark is not a redaction bookmark.
This feature must be enabled to be used. See zpool-features(7) for details on ZFS feature flags and the bookmarks feature.

Example 1: Creating a bookmark

The following example creates a bookmark to a snapshot. This bookmark can then be used instead of a snapshot in send streams.
# zfs bookmark rpool@snapshot rpool#bookmark
