  2. In the navigation pane, select the Storage Virtual Machine (SVM), and click Policies > Efficiency Policies.
  3. Click Add and specify the policy name.
  4. Specify how the storage efficiency policy should be run:
    • Select Schedule and specify the schedule name and the schedule details.

      You can specify the maximum run-time duration of the efficiency policy, if required.

    • Select ChangeLog Threshold and specify the threshold value for the change in volume data (in percent).
  5. Optional: Select the Set QoS policy to background check box to reduce performance impact on client operations.
