Understanding predefined efficiency policies
You can configure a volume with efficiency policies to achieve additional space savings. You can configure a volume to run inline compression without a scheduled or manually started background efficiency operation configured on the volume.
When you create an SVM, the following efficiency policies are created automatically and cannot be deleted:
You can configure a volume with the efficiency policy to run the scheduled deduplication operations on the volume.
You can configure a volume with the inline-only efficiency policy and enable inline compression, to run inline compression on the volume without any scheduled or manually started background efficiency operations.
For more information about the inline-only and default efficiency policies, see the man pages.
