- Netapp E-Series
- Volume Group
Adding capacity to a volume when using traditional Volume Group instead of Disk Pools can take long time depending of which volume is expanded:
- If the expansion is for volume A for example, the new blocks have to be contiguous in traditional Volume Group, so the system will need to reallocate volumes B, C and D to make space for A to grow.
- If the expansion is for the last volume with contiguous free space, then the system would not need to reallocate the rest.
