illumos:: zfs get ‘s’ a new look

I recently pushed a feature for zfs into the illumos gate.

With this push the ‘zfs get’ command takes moutpoints as arguments as well.

This proves to be quite a handy tool especially when you dont have a clue as to where your filesystems/snapshots are mounted.

A sneak peek …

Native zfs cmd

# zfs get mountpoint /root/Test/
cannot open ‘/root/Test/’: invalid dataset name

With the new commit

# ./zfs get all /root/Test/ |head -10

NAME          PROPERTY              VALUE                  SOURCE

PS: If you’ve never tried illumos , you should. Its something very new/fresh and different
