FabricPool/Inactive Data Reporting

Hi,

 

I'm looking into FabricPool for a supported FAS platform. The intention is to use the maximum cooling threshold of 183 days. Before I go down the route of enabling FabricPool, I want to run an analysis on the data to establish how much data qualifies as cold in relation to the 183 day cooling period. The documentation says:

 

  • For an aggregate that is not used for FabricPool, inactive data reporting uses the tiering policy to decide how much data to report as cold.

    • For the none tiering policy, 31 days is used.

    • For the snapshot-only and auto, inactive data reporting uses tiering-minimum-cooling-days.

  • For the ALL policy, inactive data reporting assumes the data will tier within a day.

             Until the period is reached, the output shows “-” for the amount of inactive data instead of a value.

 

Am I really going to have to wait 183 days before I can establish how much data qualifies as cold?

 

Thanks
