we configured thin provisoned volumes with thin luns, to vmware 6.7 environment.
The luns are used for veaam replicas, so daily there are so much changes going on those luns.
The vmware space recliamation works, but it is fairly slow i guess.
Our main problem is about alerting the LUN free space.???
we can monitor the volume ,from netapp and from Netapp AIQ, also we can monitor the vmwware datastoree from wmware and vmware monitiroing software, but i couldnt find a alerting mechanizm for the netapp LUN ,
neither in netapp ssytem manager ,or Netapp AIQ (installed locally on vmware)
Am i missing something, does anybody have an idea?
Normally it is recommended to set the volume for auto grow and then monitor the aggregate free space. Would it meet your needs to put the LUN in a Qtree with a soft quota to receive alerts about volume size?
The documentation states "The LUN move operation is nondisruptive; it can be performed when the LUN is online and serving data.". Be sure to review the documentation for your version of ONTAP before making any changes. Creating a small test volume is a safe way to prove the concept.
