FAS 2020 6 disks Capacity

KIRILL_GALANOV

Hi!

I have 6 x 1tb disks in RAID 4. 5 data disks and 1 parity disk.

Considering fair size of the disk less than 1 TB I should have about 4TB of space, but Filer display the size of 3.05TB. Where is 1TB?

> vol status vol0 -r

Volume vol0 (online, raid4) (block checksums)

And if you do not have access to KB

Raw aggregate size is 4.04TiB. 10% is reserved for WAFL and is never visible which leaves 3.63TiB. As it is traditional volume, 20% is by default reserved for snapshots (and is not counted as available space). Which leaves exactly 2.9TiB. Now NetApp traditionally used definition of GB as 1024 x 1024 x 1000 and my experience is that FilerView is using these units. Which gives us approximately 3.05 "NetApp TB".

"aggr show_space" gives much better information of aggregate space consumption.
