  • Windows VM

Answer

The time to complete the reclamation depends on several factors:
  • What is the size of the LUNs
  • How many write/reads/overwrites the LUNs have
  • How much space there is in the aggregate
  • If the system needs additional performance for other tasks
 
ONTAP will schedule the reclaim as needed. Any of the factors can change the time it takes before the blocks are available.
