Is there a way to see what snap group is holding the most savepool?

My question above, I feel is a simple one but hard to answer...EMC seems unable to answer...

How can I tell which snap/snapgroup is holding the most savepool?

Normally the most logically is the OLDEST snap out there, but we have found not necessarily so...If we find a DB with a high savepool we usually start with the

oldest snap which most times, will NOT free up the most savepool space.

Is there a SYMSNAP command that I am not seeing in the CLI that will provide this type of information?

symsnap list -sid 123 

dump source and target device column into a text file and then symsnap -sid 123 -f <file> query , see which one has the most tracks changed.

does not quite add up....we have multiple snap groups and within the group there are multiple source and VDEV devices.

if you run symsnap list …it does not list all devices that are currently have an active snap session ?
