The following graphs are from Operations Manager 3.8
Is there a resource or document that explains the values in the graphs below. I am trying to determine the difference in the aggregate "used" column
of the Aggregate Space Availability graph from the aggregate "Physical Used" space in the column of the Aggregate Space Savings graph.
I need to know why the aggregate used space is different than the aggregate physical used space. I need to provide an explanation as to why the total aggregate
size (excluding aggr0) used in graph 1 does not add up to the physical size used in graph 2.
All help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance

"Used" is the capacity usage of the aggregate as reported by ONTAP "df" command.
"Physical Used" is calculated by DFM as the sum of "Physical Used" of all ASIS volumes. You can check the sum by clicking on the aggregate name in this report, then in the aggregate details jump to the Volumes link then open the "Volume Dedupe ..." report.
I think the two will differ if some non ASIS volumes exist on the aggregate, can you pls check if that's the case.

All volumes in all the aggregates have ASIS enabled.
I can see how the physical space is calculated by the following. The following is for aggr1 and all the volumes that exist in aggr1.

There is no snapshot for the volumes that are in aggr1
===== SNAP-LIST-N =====
No snapshots exist.
No snapshots exist.
Total Aggregate Physical Space: 799GB
However, I do not see how the physical space form the df -s and df commands add up to the used space in the aggregate from the df -A
command. IF you include the aggregate snapshot used space of 263 to the above aggregate physical total of 799 you get 1.061 TB which is not
depicted in the Aggregate Space Availability graph which shows 1.02 TB used.

Hope this makes sense.
Thanks for the help!
