Description dgilbert 2016-03-01 16:27:10 UTC
There's a problem or a basic conflict between sysutils/zxfer and sysutils/zfstools --- zfstools will happily make and delete snapshots on a schedule.  zxfer seems to crash if, after it scans the pool, a snapshot gets deleted.

It would be better if it re-read the pool configuration and then continued to work.

I am looking at making it re-fetch the list of snapshots if the list it has is more than a minute or two old, but have not gotten around to implementing it.

I am planning a totally new tool to replace zxfer, because it fundamentally lacks the ability to handle things like resumable send and bookmarks.

Anyway, please file this upstream with the port here: https://github.com/allanjude/zxfer/issues/new

Assign Allan his own PR.

(Maybe it's a good idea to change MAINTAINER to allanjude@FreeBSD.org on all ports maintained by ports@scaleengine.com ?)
Comment 3 John Marino freebsd_committer 2016-08-19 04:00:29 UTC
correction: PR was opened by dgilbert but it's still better to assign it to FreeBSD user name

Any news here?
Comment 5 Allan Jude freebsd_committer 2018-02-07 04:16:54 UTC
This is still a known issue.
