I am observing a strange situation.
I created volume 6.1 Gb Thick Provision with Autogrow Mode enable and LUN fixed size 6GB Thick Provision for the VMs to guarantee space for the VMs.
The LUN size does not change, but the volume on which this LUN is located is growing in size all the time.
On the LUN, virtual machines occupy only 720 Gb out of 6 TB (see attach file LUN.jpg).
But volume already takes 6.81 TB and only 160 Gb is free on it! (see attach file Volume1.jpg)
It means that the metadata is 650 GB!
720 Gb users data and 650 GB metadata - this is more than strange!!!
How can I predict volume growth? Can you accurately calculate the maximum size the volume will have if it has a 6TB Thick Provision LUN?
