About SmartMove

With Storage Foundation's SmartMove feature, Veritas File System (VxFS) lets Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) know which blocks have data. VxVM, which is the copy engine for migration, copies only the used blocks and avoids copying unused blocks. This behavior helps optimize the thin storage utilization.
