Is there anyway I can schedule to stop all active deduplication on a certain schedule. I want to make sure that before the start of business hours, no deduplication is running.

with one command you cannot but you can create a script for it to stop all of them but it is not a good practice.
More difficult to answer, since we don't know what other processing your system is doing while its deduplicating, and how critical this processing is. As a general rule, deduplication runs as a low priority background process and should not place significant load on the system. However, if this is a concen, we recommend a phased deduplication approach. Start by implementing dedupe a single volume or LUN, and observe system behavior. Repeat this step on other volumes and LUNs and observe the results, remembering that you can stop or undo the deduplication process at any time.
