storage capacity after VV deleted



I have deleted a VV, size 6Tb, the management console show the task completed and duration 11 seconds.

This morning I don't see the volume size of 6 Tb avalaible on the Console. This is the first time that I delete a VV on this 3Par.  Is the 3Par need a lot of time to display the volume avalaible ?

Is there any action to do to refresh the capacity storage ?

Hi Alex,

If you are refering about avliable RAW cpaacity is not udpated.  run the compactcpg.

in 3PAR even we delete volume , the LD's are still used by CPG.  You can notice CPG free space will be increased. .
