Guidelines for using deduplication

Deduplication runs as a system operation and consumes system resources when the deduplication operation is running on FlexVol volumes.

If the data does not change often in a volume, it is best to run deduplication less frequently. If you run multiple concurrent deduplication operations on a storage system, these operations lead to a higher consumption of system resources. It is best to begin with fewer concurrent deduplication operations. Increasing the number of concurrent deduplication operations gradually enables you to better understand the impact on the system.
