NAME
     fssconfig -- configure file system snapshot devices

SYNOPSIS
     fssconfig [-cxv] device path backup [cluster [size]]
     fssconfig -u [-v] device
     fssconfig -l [-v] [device]

DESCRIPTION
     The fssconfig command configures file system snapshot pseudo disk devices.  It will asso-
     ciate the file system snapshot disk device with a snapshot of path allowing the latter to be
     accessed as though it were a disk.

     If backup resides on the snapshotted file system a persistent snapshot will be created.
     This snapshot is active until backup is unlinked.	This snapshot mode is only supported for
     ffs files systems.

     Otherwise data written through the path will be saved in backup.  If backup is a regular
     file, it will be created with length size.  Default size is the size of path.  Data is saved
     to backup in units of cluster bytes.

     Options indicate an action to be performed:

     -c   Configures the device.  If successful, references to device will access the contents of
	  path at the time the snapshot was taken.  If backup is a directory, a temporary file
	  will be created in this directory.  This file will be unlinked on exit.

     -l   List the snapshot devices and indicate which ones are in use.  If a specific device is
	  given, then only that will be described.

     -u   Unconfigures the device.

     -v   Be more verbose listing the snapshot devices.

     -x   Unlink backup after the device is configured.

     If no action option is given, -c is assumed.

FILES
     /dev/rfss?
     /dev/fss?

EXAMPLES
	   fssconfig fss0 /usr /tmp/back

     Configures the snapshot device fss0 for a snapshot of the /usr file system.  Data written
     through /usr will be backed up in /tmp/back.

	   fssconfig fss1 / /dev/rsd0e 8192

     Configures the snapshot device fss1 for a snapshot of the / file system.  Data written
     through / will be backed up in /dev/rsd0e.  The backup will take place in units of 8192
     bytes.

	   fssconfig -u fss0

     Unconfigures the fss0 device.
