Optimizing a resized (expanded) volume?

When a flexible volume is resized (extended) several times won't there eventually be a need to optimize or redistribute the data on that volume? Is there a utility to do so?

I believe you are referring to the "reallocate" command.  Check out link below:

I'm amazed at how difficult it is for me to find what I'm looking for in the CLI guide. I'm new to Data ONTAP and while I got help setting it up I'm flying nearly blind now that's it's up and running.
