Setting and getting other ZFS properties

Managing ZFS properties is one of the secrets when we are working with the ZFS filesystem, and this is the reason why understanding the inherence concept is very important.

One ZFS property can usually have three origins as source: local (the property value was set locally), default (the property wasn't set either locally or by inheritance), and inherited (the property was inherited from an ancestor). Additionally, two other values are possible: temporary (the value isn't persistent) and none (the property is read-only, and its value was generated by ZFS). Based on these key concepts, the sections are going to present different and interesting properties for daily administration.
