Viewing efficiency space savings on a FlexVol volume

You can view the amount of space savings achieved through deduplication and data compression on a volume by using the volume show command.

About this task

The space savings in Snapshot copies are not included when calculating the space savings achieved on a volume. Using deduplication does not affect volume quotas. Quotas are reported at the logical level, and remain unchanged.

Step

  1. Use the volume show command to view space savings achieved on a volume using deduplication and data compression.

Example

The following command enables you to view the space savings achieved by using deduplication and data compression on volume VolA:
volume show -vserver vs1 -volume VolA
cluster1::> volume show -vserver vs1 -volume VolA

                                 Vserver Name: vs1
                                  Volume Name: VolA
