Deduplication bug?



today I think we hit hard this bug, filling a 3.7TB aggregate with 1.2TB of A-SIS


   Total space    WAFL reserve    Snap reserve    Usable space
BSR NVLOG           A-SIS          Smtape
         3673GB           367GB             0KB          3306GB
   0KB          1122GB             0KB

Space allocated to volumes in the aggregate

WAFL reserve                        367GB            39GB           327GB


Now we cleaned up a little bit and now we have 150GB free and the services running.

I would like to resolve the issue, and I'm asking myself if it's wise to:


- Disable the SIS avoiding a tonight disk filling:

sis off /vol/<volname>

for every volume that has the deduplication on


- When convenient  (maybe in the weekend) run

sis start -s /vol/<volname>


- When convenient ask my specialist to upgrade the DataONTAP to a fixed version


Am I right?


PS: I'm also asking myself if there is a way to see how many stale fingerprints I have.

the percentages shown in sis status -l are not too high and it seems to me that they are wrong!
