I have an external NetApp external storage that I want to remove from a pool. It's 12TB and has data on it. Will there be a performance impact if I shrink the pool or the external storage?
All HDTtasks are largely background tasks. Even though resources are consumed by these tasks, Host I/O is always given priority. Unless your pool is very busy with high resource constraints, performance impact should be minimal.
Make sure that the remaining configuration is enough to handle your day to day operation.
Thank you so much Anahad. I completed shrinking the pool and no one complained about performance.:-)
