Effective December 3, NetApp adopts Microsoft’s Business-to-Customer (B2C) identity management to simplify and provide secure access to NetApp resources.
For accounts that did not pre-register (prior to Dec 3), access to your NetApp data may take up to 1 hour as your legacy NSS ID is synchronized to the new B2C identity.

Implementation of Data compaction and Inodes




After reviewing some documentation about implementation of Data compaction I have some opened questions.

How are the inodes changed with this feature?

Are there just multiple inodes referencing to the same 4Kb block?

How do we get the right data if there is multiple refecences to same block? Or the blocks are devided to smaller ones?


Thank you for the answers





Hope this helps http://community.netapp.com/t5/Tech-OnTap-Articles/PDF-Preview-A-Look-Inside-NetApp-Inline-Data-Compaction/ta-p/121467
