snap autodelete on volume not deleting


Let me start off by saying that i'm new to storage and am learning as I go.  We have a netapp NAS that has 5 volumes and one of the volumes "datastore0" has nightly snapshot copies that run nightly on it.  What we have been doing is manually deleting old snapshots as the volume space is increased.  I've enabled snapshot autodelete however old snapshots are not autodeleting.  Below are my settings and I can't seem to figure out why it's not autodeleting.


drmnetapp1a> snap autodelete datastore0 show
snapshot autodelete settings for datastore0:
state : on
commitment : try
trigger : volume
target_free_space : 15%
delete_order : oldest_first
defer_delete : none
prefix : (not specified)
destroy_list : none


Here are my volumes and sizes.

Any help is appreciated.
