Applies to

  • Clustered Data ONTAP 8
  • ONTAP 9

Issue

  • There is a significant discrepancy between the amount of disk space that is listed in the output of the snap list and df commands.
  • Total Snapshot size from snap show and/or snap list command is smaller from size shown with df -h command for that volume. Not all the volumes are affected.

Example output:
::> df -h -vserver svm1 -volume vol1
Filesystem               total       used      avail capacity  Mounted on                 Vserver
