I think its more about active dataset size and not necessarily total
FS size. FS might be big but if application is not accessing all of
the in reasonabl small time window, then it does not matter.

What worries me most is that cost of reclaim of a dax range seems
too high (or keeps the process blocked for long enogh), that it
kills the performance. I will need to revisit the reclaim path
and see if I can optimize something.
