MetaData Storage Location

darraghos

I read somewhere that when you create a flexclone it immediately occupies approx. 0.5% of the nominal size of the parent flexvol. This is for metadata. Is this metadata stored in the volume and charged against the free space in the volume or the aggregate? Same goes for the metadata for a LUN/Volume, where is this stored? Is it in the WAFL reserve in the aggregate?

Hi darraghos,

Its in the aggregate(volume containing aggregate)  for the flexvol volume. You can refer the below doc for the reference
