    Differences in Volume Space Reporting

    Robert Moody Newbie



      I recently received an alert message from our Nimble indicating that we have reached the 80% threshold on a particular storage volume. We cleared some of the data and freed up quite a bit of space. However, over the weekend I received another alert about the 80% mark.


      When I look at the Nimble volume, I am seeing a volume size of 3.5TB and USED is at 2.81TB. This indicates no change in data usage at all.


      When I look at the Linux server this volume is mounted to, I see

      /dev/mapper/Apps2bkup-apps2bkup    3.5T  1.6T  1.7T  49% /bkup

      (3.5T - SIZE, 1.6T - USED, 1.7T - AVAILABLE)


      Can anyone assit me in determining why the reporting difference?

      Is there a maintenance procedure I need to run on Nimble to free/clear this space?


      Thank you for your assistance,
