Hello , I've bought an AFF-A220 , so I'm new with this,  let me explain my issue , I created an application with 3TB, automatically created a Volume and a LUN, I configured a virtual Machine and that vm has 2.5TB. everyday I receive this error below. Now application has 4,75TB, how this happens?  how can I fix?

Which snapshot policy is accociated with the volume?   My guess is snapshots are consuming space.

Yes, snapshots are consuming the space.  It doesn't appear that the array is controlling the schedule.  Do you have something like SnapCenter running?  Or some other 3rd party software initiating NetApp snapshots?  Backup software such as Commvault or Veeam can initiate NetApp snapshots.

It looks like the system was automatically taking scheduled snapshots and then very recently you toothed it off. This left all the old snapshots on the system

 

Delete them and that will clear up space
