Total managed space for a storage pool (volume) discrepancy

Contributors

  • Issue

    If you are using another storage management tool, such as FilerView, you might notice a different size reported for the total managed space for a storage pool (volume) than the size returned by SMI-S Provider.

  • Cause

    This discrepancy occurs because the size returned by SMI-S Provider includes the WAFL and Snapshot reserve, while FilerView and other tools show only the usable space, excluding WAFL and Snapshot reserve.

  • Corrective action

    This is an expected behavior; no corrective action.
