zpool-checkpoint
Checkpoints the current state of a ZFS storage pool

zpool checkpoint [
-d, --discard [
-w, --wait
]
] pool

zpool checkpoint [
-d, --discard [
-w, --wait
]
] pool
Checkpoints the current state of pool , which can be later restored by zpool import --rewind-to-checkpoint. The existence of a checkpoint in a pool prohibits the following zpool commands: remove, attach, detach, split, and reguid. In addition, it may break reservation boundaries if the pool lacks free space. The zpool status command indicates the existence of a checkpoint or the progress of discarding a checkpoint from a pool. The zpool list command reports how much space the checkpoint takes from the pool.
--discard
Discards an existing checkpoint from pool.
--wait
Waits until the checkpoint has finished being discarded before returning.
