  • ONTAP  9.8
  • Temperature Sensitive Storage Efficiency (TSSE)

Issue

  • All volumes with adaptive inline compression enabled display 0B compression in ONTAP 9.8:

::*> aggr show-efficiency -aggregate !*root,!*snaplock -fields volume-compression-saved
aggregate              volume-compression-saved
---------------------- ------------------------
aggr1                  0B
aggr2                  0B
aggr3                  0B
aggr4                  0B
 
  • Volume shows deduplication savings, but no space saved by compression:
::*> volume show -volume vol* -fields dedupe-space-saved,dedupe-space-saved-percent,compression-space-saved,compression-space-saved-percent
