 Datasets scheduled for snapshots:
 midgard - hourly - total: 168
 nas - hourly - total: 168

 zpool list
 midgard   117G  81.8G  35.2G    69%  1.00x  ONLINE  -
 nas      8.12T  4.22T  3.90T    51%  1.00x  ONLINE  -

 Yes, those are two pools in my desktop machine. midgard is the bootpool
 (/, /usr/, /usr/home/, /var etc.) currently consisting only of one SSD,
 then we have the nas pool which is a RAID-Z1 of 3x3TB disks. Within the
 nas pool I have the mentioned backups dataset, and under this the midgard
 dataset in which I backup the whole midgard pool.
 Yes, I'd like to have snapshots on both pools, with the exception of the
 nas/backups dataset and all subsequent datasets.

 Extending my original request: might it be possible to incorporate some of
 the functionality of the zfs-snapshot-mgmt into lifepreserver? With this
 port it is possible to define to keep e.g. hourly snapshots for 1 day,
 Twice-a-day snapshots for 1 week. Weekly snapshots for 3 months, and so
 on. It automatically destroys intermediate snapshots that don't fit that
 scheme. This would be a really handy feature.
