  • ONTAP 9.5
  • ONTAP 9.5P1
  • ONTAP 9.5P2
  • Space reclamation

Issue

  • Volumes do not reclaim freed space, which can lead to space issues such as full volumes and/or aggregates.
  • To confirm, run the following command several times over the span of a few hours:
    Cluster01::> volume show-footprint -aggregate * -delayed-free-footprint-percent >2
  • The relevant scanner should run once the footprint percent exceeds 2. If the same volumes are shown and the percentage does not decrease, then the volume is experiencing the issue.
  • Note: this issue only affects a limited number of releases of ONTAP 9.5
