P2000 G3 MSA leaving free unprovisioned space best practice?

Good day

We support a few HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSAs, and one has all its space provisioned (0 GB available to provision for new volumes.) Just wondering - is there a best practice to always leave a certain amount of free unprovisioned space, or does it not matter with these?

Cheers!

Hello,

AFAIK it doesn't matter. The P2000 G3 doesn't need additional space for housekeeping like the EVA.
