I've seen this when aggr snapshots are autodeleted for no space... If you set the snapshot schedule to 0 "snap sched-A aggrname 0" and the reserve to 0 "snap reserve -A aggrname 0", then run "snap delete -A aggrname autodelete_base" does it go away?
The purpose of “Autodelete_base” is : If Aggregate snapshot autodelete is leaving you with no snapshots, the storage system will automatically create a snapshot calledautodelete_baseat the aggregate level when a snapshot is removed as a result of autodeletion. This ensures that there is always a new snapshot in the aggregate after a snapshot is deleted.
If aggregate snapshots are enabled and there is not adequate space reserved for these snapshots, a situation may develop where a very large aggregate snapshot is created. This may occur if large volumes are deleted.If SyncMirror triggers an aggregate level snapshot and there is not enough space for two snapshots, the existing snapshot is deleted by the autodeletion feature and instantly replaced by theautodelete_basesnapshot. However, there is still not enough space for the SyncMirror triggered snapshot. This will cause a loop of autodeletion which can only be interrupted by manually deleting theautodelete_basesnapshot.
Disable automatic aggregate Snapshot copy creation by entering the following command:aggr optionsaggr_namenosnap on
aggr_nameis the name of the aggregate for which you want to disable automatic Snapshot copy creation.
Delete all Snapshot copies in the aggregate by entering the following command:snap delete -A -aaggr_name
Set the aggregate Snapshot reserve to 0 percent by entering the following command:snap reserve -Aaggr_name0
