VOL CLONE space consume

Can any one tell if we create vol clone with snapshot so it will create the another. The question is that it consume separate aggr space of parent volume space

  • vol clone create nfs_s1_a5_coloora12db1_u02_002 -s none -b nfs_s1_a5_coloora12db1_u02 r12UAT_DBF   --------à

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

Once you clone the volume from a particular snapshot that snapshot will locked and will list as (busy,vclone)  .

Clone volume will not consume any  space till it's not splitted from the original volume .It will take space from the same aggregate once its splitted  .

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

Thanks for your prompt response.

That mean colned volume will consumed only space from parent volume till it was not split it.

Please correct me if  i am wrong.

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

Thanks , But question that cloned volume will consume the space from aggr or volume

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

Before split -will not take any space 

After split - will take from aggr  .

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

As i already told you that "you are right" means it will take space from volume untill you will split it.

and if you have gone through link provided by me. you must not ask this questions again

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

Thanks guys i have gone through link. But little confusion here so when we write the data on new cloned volume  then it will take the data from the parent volume or aggr.

Re: VOL CLONE space consume

parent volume..
