Clean aggregate


Hello friends,


I have a question to see if you can help me. I have a FAS2552. I see that I have a space alert on the aggregate or aggr0_1 drive and I see that this at 98% this drive is 320GB and is almost Full. Could you tell me how I can do to clean up the space.





If I can see that it is the footprint, I would like to know how I can do if I can clean it or if I have to do something else. Also, what does it mean to clean the footprint and what does it mean for me?








could please Post the Output of vol show?


Aggr0 is normaly your Root Aggr, check the Root Volumes - For clean up space in Root Volumes use this guide:

I'm enclosing, as far as I can see what takes up space is Volume Footprints, can you delete this data? what is their function?



Use df -h to show the volume in Detailed list. Aggr0 is the Root Aggregate of Data ONTAP, in that Aggr is the root volume (vol0) located, you can free up Space in the Root Volume with the Introduction I posted.. You can't free up Space in that Volume as you want, because this Aggr and Volume are necesssary for the System.



I did according to the URL. But I see that I do not recover space. what else could I do. there were no .trc files.

Post the Output from df -h and volume show - the Volumes take the Space in your aggregate if the volumes not full you are fine!
