Poolsman Early Access Program (EAP)

The Poolsman Preview 6 release is already available. Be the first to try it.

What is EAP?

EAP (Early Access Program) is a special program for early adopters. It's intended for those people who'd like to get an easy and trusted way to manage ZFS on common Linux systems as early as possible and ready to face some early bugs. EAP will give you an opportunity to start using Poolsman before its general availability, which is expected later in 2023 with 1.0 release. EAP will grant access to all existing and new features for one year. With the final release (version 1.0) we may rethink our licensing model, but all EAP licenses will remain active until expiration. Additionally we will provide special conditions for migration to a new license for all early adopters who joined EAP.

How EAP order works?

What's already implemented?

  1. Pools management (create/destroy/export/scrub pools, replace/offline/online/attach/detach/trim disks);
  2. Datasets (both Filesystems and ZVols), Snapshots and Clones management (create/update/rename/destroy with full support of compression and deduplication);
  3. Disks monitoring (temperature, health, S.M.A.R.T.);
  4. Dashboard with the top level information about ZFS RAM usage, disks and pools;
  5. Unique Command Preview feature (ability to review each CLI command before execution);
  6. Light and dark UI theme.

Probably the best way to meet with all features is to explore our Screenshots Gallery and Announcements.

Next features are expected very soon:
