My question is around the space in an aggregate. Consider the following over simplified example:
Now, I create a flex-clone of the volume and write 50 Gb into it. So:
Now, when I delete the flex-clone, should i see that 50GB immediately returned to the Aggregate?
Have a look at this link, it may help you
HI, thanks for the reply. My question though is will I see the space returned to the aggregate immediately i.e. are the blocks returned to the aggregate free space immediately or on a schedule?
Unfortunately, it may not be returned immediately as it depends on several factors like load,amount of space.
Thanks Hari, I think the load on the CPU might be my problem. CPU generally at 80% on a 2 CPU filer. Is there a way top monitor the give back?
