Adding efficiency policies

You can use System Manager to add efficiency policies for running the deduplication operation on a volume on a specified schedule or when the change in volume data reaches a specified threshold value.


  1. Click Storage > SVMs.
  2. Select the SVM, and then click SVM Settings.
  3. In the Policies pane, click Efficiency Policies.
  4. Click Add, and then specify the policy name.
  5. 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 (in percent) for the change in volume data.
  6. Optional: Select the Set QoS policy to background check box to reduce performance impact on client operations.
  7. Click Add.
