Zero page reclaimation in Hitachi VSP


You can reclaim pages in a DP-VOL to free pool capacity. If a page assigned to a DP-VOL contains only zero binary data, you can reclaim the page.

To reclaim pages in a DP-VOL

  1. In the Storage Navigator main window, in the Storage Systems tree, select Pool.
    The pool name appears below Pool.
  2. Select the pool associated with the DP-VOL that has pages you want to release.
  3. Select the Virtual Volumes
  4. From the table, select the DP-VOL that has pages you want to release.
  5. Click More Actions, and then select Reclaim Zero Pages.
    The Reclaim Zero Pages window opens (You cannot release pages in a DP-VOL when the DP-VOL is not in a normal status or the DP-VOL is in the process of reclaiming zero pages.)
  6. In Task Name type a unique name for this task or accept the default, and then click Apply.
    If Go to tasks window for status is checked, the Tasks window opens.
