Re: Total Used vs. Total Physical Used

Effectively yes. I beleive it is easier to manage a totally thin provisioned environement - so long as you have the policies in place to deal with a shortage of space situation, since when an aggregate says it's short of space it really is short of space...volume move or new disks.

 

It will not work for those environment who do not actively manage the storage, or absolutely require guarantees, otherwise thin provisioning and consequently over-provisioning allows maximum use of the resources.

 

Cheers,

Grant.
