Flex Clones - Best Practices



I have a question(s) in regards to best practices for Flex Clones:

1. Recommended pracitce in regards to how long a Flex Clone should live? Can they be kept indefiintiely or not.

2. I've read they do not take up resources in regards to flexclones or keeping track of changes,etc. If they are kept indefintiley is there a penalty or caveat on things that might limit you. CPU Memory, resouces etc.

3. Is there a limit of flex clones you can create or number of child flex clones - performance impact on volume(s) parent - child - filer resources (cpu | memory).


Thank you,
