I have a bunch of very large NFS volumes I need to run dedup on.
The problem is I must run it during the weekends since when running the dedup, disk utilization is nearing 100% and latency sky rockets during that time.
Unfortunately, it never finishes before monday morning and I'm forced to cancel it.
For some reason, maybe by design, Im unable to pick up where I left a week later and it starts the whole process from the top which bring to me an endless loop where I cannot dedup.
Any idea what I can do?
dedup creates high disk latency
must stop on weekdays
does not resume on following weekend.

It can be done using the deduplication check point feature..
Have a look at this url
Starting the deduplication with the checkpoint feature
Resuming the deduplication from where it was stopped or halted with the check point feature.
Hope this may help u, let me know if you require any info.
