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.


  • FEATURE: New, fully object oriented base library
  • FEATURE: Python 3.8 support added
  • FIX: cleanup does not delete snapshots on source if they are not present on target.
  • FIX: Wait for ZFS's garbage collection after cleanup for getting a meaningful value for freed space.
  • Dropped Python 3.5 support


Installation instructions are available on Github.
