VMFS iSCSI Volume Sizing

vcitenterprise

I've got a questions about our VMFS datastores.  We have two LUNs for our Vmware Datastores both residing on the same Volume (vmfs1)

/vol/vmfs1/lun0iscsi.datastore11.7Tonlinevmware_igroup1 : 0
/vol/vmfs1/lun1iscsi.datastore21.7Tonlinevmware_igroup1 : 1

both residing on the same Volume (vmfs1)

What I'm scared of here is that we have a 1.7TB volume with two 1.7TB LUNS on it that are both almost full and Netapp is only reporting 66% usage.  Shouldnt the volume be 2x 1.7TB to be sized correctly?

Looks like A-sis(advanced single-instance storage) is enabled for the volume.

What is the output of df -hs ? This will tell you the savings from A-sis

Thanks for the tip. I wasn’t aware that we had A-sis going yet. 50% dedup explains the sizing perfectly.
