FileClone operation fails with Device busy error

Operation I am trying : create a new lun from snapshot . (Most of time it is successful)

Some time i am getting below error:

<results status=\"failed\" errno=\"16\"Clone operation failed to start: Device busy..\"></results>

 

what is the main reason for this error?

because after some time when i try to clone it was successful.

 

is there any throtle limit for I/O?

should i wait for some time like (5-10 sec) and then retry?
