snap reserve aggregate

Default snap reserve for aggregate is 5 % , and this  can be adjusted.

You can check aggregate snap reserve on NetApp storage with this command :

filler > snap reserve -A aggr_name

example :

filler > snap reserve -A aggr1

to addjusted use command :

filler > snap reserve -A aggr_name 1

for my experience, will be set to 1 % or 0 ( zero ) . My reason, because snapshot aggregate needed for recover to some or all volume, and this rarely  to recover volume for me… 🙂 .

But if you are using aggr syncmirror, snapshot reserve for aggregate cannot set to 0 ( zero ).
