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.
