How to reclaim space after removing virtual volume 3PAR?

Hello,

 

I have an Inserv F200 3PAR. Yesterday I deleted 2 virtual volumes of 3PAR. Before the deletion it had 410GB free and now continues to have 410GB. How I can refresh this information? I read about reclaim space in 3PAR, but do not find the way to do.

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: How to reclaim space after removing virtual volume 3PAR?

It depends on how large the virtual volumes were. Each CPG has a growth size. This lets the CPG keep some chunklets pre-reserved. Also, when volumes are deleted, it will retain some space in the CPG assuming the space will be reused. Try compacting your CPGs:

compactcpg -f -pat *

 

The following command will set up a job to run weekly (Sundays, 0000 hours):

createsched -no_alert "compactcpg -f -pat *" @weekly Compact_All_CPGs

I'll try your solution. I had tried to compact the CPG from Inform, but "compact CPG..." option was disabled.

>but "compact CPG..." option was disabled.

 

What was the command you used and what was the output?

What HP 3PAR OS version are you using?

 

Note if you are in a Unix shell, you'll need to quote that "*".

Oh sorry,

 

I mean the "3PAR InForm managem.ent console". In it there is an option to compact CPG but is disabled. My 3PAR is InServ F200. I will try with cli console

 

I'll use the cli console as such you recommend me.
