Description Martin Birgmeier 2019-05-05 15:26:43 UTC
Using 'zfs list -o <attributes>' normally aligns the columns. This is not the case if 'guid' is specified as one of the attributes. Furthermore, the guid is printed in decimal, but since it is a 64-bit number it might be better to print it as 8 hex bytes, e.g., instead of

17285092600981406395

it would be nicer to see something like

efe0-fc23-e73a-c2bb

Could at least the alignment be fixed?
