ZFS-SET(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		    ZFS-SET(8)

     zfs-set --	Sets the property or list of properties	to the given value(s)
     for each dataset.

     zfs set property=value [property=value]...	filesystem|volume|snapshot...
     zfs get [-r|-d depth] [-Hp] [-o field[,field]...] [-s source[,source]...]
	 [-t type[,type]...] all | property[,property]...
     zfs inherit [-rS] property	filesystem|volume|snapshot...

     zfs set property=value [property=value]...	filesystem|volume|snapshot...
       Only some properties can	be edited.  See	zfsprops(8) for	more informa-
       tion on what properties can be set and acceptable values.  Numeric val-
       ues can be specified as exact values, or	in a human-readable form with
       a suffix	of B, K, M, G, T, P, E,	Z (for bytes, kilobytes, megabytes,
       gigabytes, terabytes, petabytes,	exabytes, or zettabytes,
       respectively).  User properties can be set on snapshots.	 For more in-
       formation, see the User Properties section of zfsprops(8).

     zfs get [-r|-d depth] [-Hp] [-o field[,field]...] [-s source[,source]...]
       [-t type[,type]...] all | property[,property]...
       Displays	properties for the given datasets.  If no datasets are speci-
       fied, then the command displays properties for all datasets on the sys-
       tem.  For each property,	the following columns are displayed:

	   name	     Dataset name
	   property  Property name
	   value     Property value
	   source    Property source  local, default, inherited,
		     temporary,	received or none (-).

       All columns are displayed by default, though this can be	controlled by
       using the -o option.  This command takes	a comma-separated list of
       properties as described in the Native Properties	and User Properties
       sections	of zfsprops(8).

       The value all can be used to display all	properties that	apply to the
       given dataset's type (filesystem, volume, snapshot, or bookmark).

       -H  Display output in a form more easily	parsed by scripts.  Any	head-
	   ers are omitted, and	fields are explicitly separated	by a single
	   tab instead of an arbitrary amount of space.

       -d depth
	   Recursively display any children of the dataset, limiting the re-
	   cursion to depth.  A	depth of 1 will	display	only the dataset and
	   its direct children.

       -o field
	   A comma-separated list of columns to	display.
	   name,property,value,source is the default value.

       -p  Display numbers in parsable (exact) values.

       -r  Recursively display properties for any children.

       -s source
	   A comma-separated list of sources to	display.  Those	properties
	   coming from a source	other than those in this list are ignored.
	   Each	source must be one of the following: local, default,
	   inherited, temporary, received, and none.  The default value	is all

       -t type
	   A comma-separated list of types to display, where type is one of
	   filesystem, snapshot, volume, bookmark, or all.

     zfs inherit [-rS] property	filesystem|volume|snapshot...
       Clears the specified property, causing it to be inherited from an an-
       cestor, restored	to default if no ancestor has the property set,	or
       with the	-S option reverted to the received value if one	exists.	 See
       zfsprops(8) for a listing of default values, and	details	on which prop-
       erties can be inherited.

       -r  Recursively inherit the given property for all children.

       -S  Revert the property to the received value if	one exists; otherwise
	   operate as if the -S	option was not specified.
