FabricPool isn't tiering data that XCP reports as inactive

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9.8+
  • FabricPool
  • XCP
  • File System Analytics (FSA)


  • After generating an XCP report on the volume, XCP reports that most of the data was last accessed over a year ago:

  • ONTAP has only tiered a minimal amount of data when the volume uses the default tiering-minimum-cooling-days of 31 days:
