nilfs2 Simple Snapshot Scheduler

The script is a "cron bot" script that manages the nilfs2 snapshots so as to make a rollback history that contains:

  • the last of each year when older than a year, else

  • the last of each month when older than a month, else

  • the last of each week when older than a week, else

  • the last of each day when older than a day, else

  • the last of each hour when older than an hour, else

  • a new snapshot when the last is an hour old or more

The script operates by reviewing the current series of snapshots and "declassify" them as appropriate for having such a rollback history.
