[gpfsug-discuss] GPFS snapshot cron job

I'm new on this list. It looks like it can be useful for exchanging
We have been running GPFS for a couple of years now on one cluster and
are in process of bringing it up on a couple of other clusters.
One thing we would like, but have not had time to do is automatic
snapshots similar to what NetApp does. For our purposes a cron job
that ran every 4 hours that creates a new snapshot and removes older
snapshots would be sufficient. The slightly hard task is correctly
removing the older snapshots.
Does anyone have such a cron script they can share?
Or did I miss something in GPFS that handles automatic snapshots?
I've never been lost; I was once bewildered for three days, but never lost!
