Veritas File System (VxFS) supports reclamation of free storage on a Thin Storage LUN. Free storage is reclaimed using the fsadm command or the vxfs_ts_reclaim API. You can perform the default reclamation or aggressive reclamation. If you used a file system for a long time and must perform reclamation on the file system, Symantec recommends that you run aggressive reclamation. Aggressive reclamation compacts the allocated blocks, which creates larger free blocks that can potentially be reclaimed.
