Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1 

Description

The default configuration for aggregate level snapshots in clustered Data ONTAP is as below:

  • aggregate option nosnap=off
  • aggregate option snapshot_autodelete=on
  • aggregate snapshot schedule is 0 1 4@9,14,19
  • aggregate snapshot reserve is 0

The above configuration results in snapshots being created and maintained as per the schedule. If the aggregate is becoming full, then Data ONTAP will automatically start deleting the snapshots, and no space will be reserved for the aggregate snapshots.
