Aggregate space not reducing after deleting volumes. The volume count hasn't gone down either.

The volumes are in the recovery queue:

to see it:

set -priv diag

volume recovery-queue show -vserver <vserver name>

 

to delete it:

volume recovery-queue purge -vserver <vserver_name> -volume <volume name>

 

to delete all volume in recovery queue:

volume recovery-queue purge-all -vserver <vserver_name>

The volumes are gone but the volume count on the aggregate hasn't changed and the aggr size hasn't changed either.

Do I need to wait for wafl to reclaim that space? I deleted 15TB of data but the aggr utilization hasn't changed.
