NAME

       btrfs-send - send data of subvolume(s) to stdout/file.

SYNOPSIS

       btrfs send [-ve] [-p <parent>] [-c <clone-src>] [-f <outfile>] <subvol>
       [<subvol>...]

DESCRIPTION

       Sends the subvolume(s) specified by <subvol> to stdout.

       By default, this will send the whole subvolume. To do an incremental
       send, use -p <parent>.

       If you want to allow btrfs to clone from any additional local
       snapshots, use -c <clone-src> (multiple times where applicable).

       You must not specify clone sources unless you guarantee that these
       snapshots are exactly in the same state on both sides, the sender and
       the receiver.

       It is allowed to omit the -p <parent> option when -c <clone-src>
       options are given, in which case btrfs send will determine a suitable
       parent among the clone sources itself.

       Options

       -v
           Enable verbose debug output. Each occurrence of this option
           increases the verbose level more.

       -e
           If sending multiple subvols at once, use the new format and omit
           the <end cmd> between the subvols.

       -p <parent>
           Send an incremental stream from <parent> to <subvol>.

       -c <clone-src>
           Use this snapshot as a clone source for an incremental send
           (multiple allowed).

       -f <outfile>
           Output is normally written to stdout. To write to a file, use this
           option. An alternative would be to use pipes.

       --no-data
           Send in NO_FILE_DATA mode. The output stream does not contain any
           file data and thus cannot be used to transfer changes. This mode is
           faster and useful to show the differences in metadata.

EXIT STATUS

       btrfs send returns a zero exit status if it succeeds. Non zero is
       returned in case of failure.
