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