Does anyone have any knowledge of this process? I get that it is supposed to reclaim space, but what are you supposed to do when it stops doing its job? Seems to be the issue we are facing at the moment.

It is a magical mystery to me. I have given up.
Just wait a week after UNMAP for the process to finish.

AFAIK there is a hidden task running, I do not think it is user interactive.
If anyone from HPE or partners who actually know, feel free to share!

Just throwing it out there, contact 3PAR support?

I've yet to find anywhere I can see the status of the process. If my memory serves me right you can do this in CLI to check what it has done (if running) for the last 24 hours

showeventlog -debug -oneline -msg GC -min 1440

Thanks for the replies. I had a elevated case open with HP and it eventually made it to the engineer level, our 3par actually dropped down to 3GB free space! We are still waiting for an official RCA.
