The zstream utility manipulates ZFS send streams output by the zfs send command.
zstream dump [
-Cvd
] [
file
]
Print information about the specified send stream, including headers and record counts. The send stream may either be in the specified file, or provided on standard input.
Suppress the validation of checksums.
Verbose. Print metadata for each record.
Dump data contained in each record. Implies verbose.
The zstreamdump alias is provided for compatibility and is equivalent to running zstream dump.
zstream token resume_token
Dumps zfs resume token information
zstream decompress [
-v
] [
object,offset[
,type...
]
]
Decompress selected records in a ZFS send stream provided on standard input, when the compression type recorded in ZFS metadata may be incorrect. Specify the object number and byte offset of each record that you wish to decompress. Optionally specify the compression type. Valid compression types include gzip, lz4, lzjb, zstd, and zle. The default is lz4. Every record for that object beginning at that offset will be decompressed, if possible. It may not be possible, because the record may be corrupted in some but not all of the stream's snapshots. The repaired stream will be written to standard output.
Verbose. Print summary of decompressed records.
zstream redup [
-v
] file
Deduplicated send streams can be generated by using the zfs send -D command. The ability to send deduplicated send streams is deprecated. In the future, the ability to receive a deduplicated send stream with zfs receive will be removed. However, deduplicated send streams can still be received by utilizing zstream redup.
The zstream redup command is provided a file containing a deduplicated send stream, and outputs an equivalent non-deduplicated send stream on standard output. Therefore, a deduplicated send stream can be received by running:
# zstream redup DEDUP_STREAM_FILE | zfs receive
Verbose. Print summary of converted records.

Heal a dataset that was corrupted due to OpenZFS bug #12762. First, determine which records are corrupt. That cannot be done automatically; it requires information beyond ZFS's metadata. If object 128 is corrupted at offset 0 and is compressed using lz4, then run this command:
# zfs send -c  | zstream decompress 128,0,lz4 | zfs recv
