abnormal automatic increase size on snapmirror source volume

Hello,

A volume which have a LUN had an four abnormal automatic increase since two days (350Go origin volume capacity). Never this volume and the LUNs a more used capacity. You can view some results below:

Re: abnormal automatic increase size on snapmirror source volume

Hi, looking at this the volume is obviously not full. If the LUN is 210Gb and the volume is 400+Gb then there is plenty of space.

What I would be looking for is the trigger for the Autogrow. With Autogrow you can specify at what point the volume grows, for example if it gets 70% full or 50% full then initiate an autogrow.

Also, can you see the event logs and see the point at which the volume grew? It should give you a reason for the autogrow.

Can you find this information out?
