So I've got this volume called "volddevprod" and it's taking double of what the actual size of the data is and I hoped you guys would be able to help me out on the case.
I get that different file systems show different sizes but the actual data that is used on this volume is around 800GB and I see almost 1.5TB used. So there needs to be some kind of misconfiguration.
Below you can see some output from the general sizing / deduplication commands. I've only came across the vol status -S command and found it strange that there's deduplicated data but it's not showing up on my df -s. We do not run any snapshots on this volume but have a snapmirror on it every 30 minutes. Has anyone got an idea what this is about?

We run Data Ontap 8.2.2P2 7-mode since late January 2015 but had the same issue on Data Ontap 8.1.2P3 7-mode already.

As Paul mentioned, it's probably a snapshot issue.
I didn't see any 'snap list' output for the volume.
It may be SnapMirror, or any other Snapshot copies causing the space usage.
I hope this response has been helpful to you.

Sorry guys, Thanks for the reply, been away the last 2 days!
There's a snapmirror in place. Every 30 minutes to be exact. But to my knowledge you'd clearly see that in the df -Vg in the snap reserve which is stating 0 GB.
snap list volddevprod

We were just helped via NetApp case. If anyone ever runs into the issue re-run sis with "sis start -s /vol/volname".
We had stale fingerprints and due to a bug in ontap 8.1.2 http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=657692 the space has never been freed. With running the above -s command sis dedup's the whole volume and all existing files again. After that the space was freed. Make sure to run that outside peak times as that operation will consume lot of system ressources.
