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

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.

The volumes are in the recovery queue:

https://whyistheinternetbroken.wordpress.com/2016/03/11/cdot-volume-recovery/

 

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>
