I am running ASIS and I noticed when I first
ran it I saw a snapshot.
Does Asiis take a snapshot everytime it runs?
In my environment we have non space gaurentted Volumes and Luns. We do not use sanpshots. Because of this my volumes ar eonly a little bit bigger than my luns. My fear if I have a very full lun, and Asis on a voulme, If Asis creates a snapshot when it runs, that snapshoot could interfer with my lun and take it offline? Is this a possblity?

Did you mean "All A-SIS updates are start commands WITHOUT the -s flag and do not take snapshots." Since A-SIS only takes a snapshot when start runs with the -s flag I would assume snapshots happen with updates.

I fixed my post. The snapshot is not needed because A-SIS just reads the change journal when a sis start command is issued to know which blocks need to be deduplicated.
