Thanks and have a good day


DedupUnaccessibleSpace: 878487 MB - means something is wrong with the containers that are being deduped or the filesystems holding those containers. You want to check your filesystem status with q stgpooldir and query bad containers with q container * st=unavil or st=reado. You also should run q damaged poolname t=container. NonDedupCntrAllocSpace: 7398 MB means total space for containers allocated for data that does not dedup - either via SP parms or SP intelligence looking for poor dedup candidates (like encrypte data)
thanks for the reply
I have checked the containers once more only found one container marked as readonly , more over the number of DedupUnaccessibleSpace has been decreased a lot,I guess but not sure enough that was a one time issue.
the reuse delay is set to 1 ,but I haven't checked the same values of DedupUnaccessibleSpace the next day.
now it seems good, thanks for your reply
