as a part of my "Bachelor-Thesis" (a project of the university) I want to get redundant files. I read from the deduplication-procedure of netapp. In this case I thought this could help me. I did some research but I couldn’t find a list which shows the shared bytes with the related files.
Our company uses FAS2552-Server. I got access through various interfaces:
Web-application “NetApp OnCommand System Manager 3.1.2”
PowerShell Toolkit 4.0
Operation-System DataONTAP 8.2.2 7-Mode, via SSH/Putty
I know there should be metadata on each aggregat. But I dont know how to see these metadata. Is it possible to read them?
Everything what I found are percentages of the data-saving. But that is not what I need...
Is there no possibility to get a list of the shared bytes with the related files?
I'm not sure what you mean by de-duplicated files. De-duplication in ONTap doesn't really care about files at all, although there are probably some blocks from some file types that are not a good idea to de-duplicate because of historical problems with these.
You need to read the documentation and construct your questions within the framework and terminology of how de-duplication works on NetApps ONTap.
Hey, thank you for your reply, shamz. I am really sorry for my bad english and the unclear question. I have read you have criticized it before. I have updated the question in hope it makes it more clear now.
