Show differences between snapshot and flexclone

Hello,

Say I have a volume 'master', and I have a snapshot 'A' of the master volume at some point of time.

Say I create a flexclone "child" off of snapshot 'A' and I modify some files within the flexclone "child".

Is there a fast way to compare the contents of the flexclone with the original snapshot, and list the files that have changed ?

Thanks for your time.

There is SnapDiff API that is used by some backup vendors, but I was not able to find any public documentation. I am not aware if any CLI providing this functionality.

If you ever find an answer, let us know

Re: Show differences between snapshot and flexclone

you could use the "vol clone split estimate" to get an idea of the space being used by the clone. Getting a list of files that differ is a whole different task... this might be accomplished with file-level comparison tools available in the tools market = www.
