I have a new AFF-A200. I believe I've enabled compression...at least is says that it is enabled. However I'm only getting a compression ratio of 1.3:1. From what I've read and using the NetApp Active IQ analysis tool the average is around 4:1...why would this be occuring?
Original volumes were not compressed before moving them. They are coming from a NetApp FAS2440.
I have about 1.5 TB of Office (mostly Word), pdf, and email history files (Worldox) stored on a volume. I expected to see a big compression advantage on this type of files. The majority of the volume space is comprised of this data currently. However, I'm getting 1.27:1 compression level for the volume.
