Is there a way to calculate the size of restore_symboltable created by ndmpcopy?

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • NDMP


No, there is no formula for calculating actual size of restore_symboltable.
The restore_symboltable is created on destination by ndmpcopy for incremental restores. It contains inomap metafile information so the size depends on some factors like inomap, its structure, etc.
