Does InsightIQ File System Analyitics account fro deduplication?

Jump to solution

Hi there,

So as the title says I'm interested to find out if the folder sizes in InsightIQ -> File SYstem Analytics -> Data Properties take into account deduplication? I've RTFM'd and googled to no avail, I would hope that it uses the raw size but some of our statistics over time would seem to indicate that when we applied deduplication to an area the folder sizes reduced. This may be a coincidence but we'd like to know so we can take it into account if needs be.

Thanks for looking!

Hello Mattkins,

FSAnalyze uses file metadata from your cluster to build it's reports. Each report will contain the physical (with dedupe) and logical (without dedupe) size of files, so it would depend on which number you were looking at for file size.

I hope this helps!
