Viewing the status of efficiency operations on a FlexVol volume

You can view whether deduplication or data compression is enabled on a volume and check the status, state, and progress of the efficiency operations on a volume by using the sis status command.

Step

  1. View the status of an efficiency operation on a volume by entering the following command: sis status path
    path is the complete path to the volume.

    The following table describes status and progress messages that you might see after running the sis status command:

    Message Message type Description
    Idle status and progress No active efficiency operation is in progress.
    Pending status The limit of maximum concurrent efficiency operations allowed for a storage system or a vFiler unit is reached. Any efficiency operation requested beyond this limit is queued.
    Active status Efficiency operations are running.
    size Scanned progress A scan of the entire volume is running, of which size is already scanned.
    size Compressed progress Compression operations have compressed data, of which size is already compressed.
    size Searched progress A search of duplicated data is running, of which size is already searched.
    size (pct%) Done progress Efficiency operations have saved size amounts of data. pct% is the percentage saved of the total duplicated data that was discovered in the search stage.
    size Verified progress A verification of the metadata of processed data blocks is running, of which size is already verified.
    pct% merged progress Deduplication operations have merged pct% (percentage) of all the verified metadata of processed data blocks to an internal format that supports fast deduplication operations.

Example

The following command displays the status of an efficiency operation on volume VolA: sis status /vol/VolA

If the efficiency operation is enabled on volume VolA and the operation is idle, then you can see the following in the system output:
node1> sis status /vol/VolA
Path             State      Status     Progress
/vol/VolA        Enabled    Active     23 MB Scanned, 20 MB Compressed
