I have just created a veritas filesystem /dblog.

/dev/vx/dsk/dbs-dg/exportvol     48.83      3.13     45.70    7% /export
/dev/vx/dsk/dbs-dg/dbweb      4.88      0.32      4.56    7% /dbweb
/dev/vx/dsk/dbs-dg/dblogvol     48.83      3.13     45.70    7% /dblog
 
I want to delete this file system because the size is much bigger than the requirement. 
Anyone can help please.
 
Thanks in advance

You could shrink the

You could shrink the filesystem using vxresize, but as it looks empty, then better to delete filesystem, so you need to delete volume:

umount /dblog
vxassist -g dbs-dg remove volume dblogvol

 

Then you can recreate:
 

 

vxassist -g dbs-dg make dblogvol 30g (30g for example)
mkfs -Fvxfs /dev/vx/rdsk/dbs-dg/dblogvol
mount /dev/vx/dsk/dbs-dg/dblogvol /dblog
