I just deleted two replica profiles from the target engine (just deleted the received replicas). However the target engine didn't start any thread for reclaiming storage and the % of the storage in use is still more than 78% (first warning threeshold). How could I trigger the reclaiming storage thread? Thank you.

Hello sir, 
I reached out internally to our support team here and they would like you to open a ticket with them. They would like more information about the environment and the engagement. That way, they will not be shooting in the dark.
That said, if you would be willing to share the solution you receive back here in the community, it would be greatly appreciated. 

Would you please open a ticket here: https://support.delphix.com/.

Thank you,
Michael

Hi Gianpiero, 
I have shared your idea with our product team. I believe they are already tracking a feature request for this that we will be able to add your voice to.

Thanks,
Michael

Hello Gianpiero,

The following link may help you to troubleshoot the issue internally.

https://docs.delphix.com/docs/system-administration/capacity-and-resource-management/an-overview-of-...

The above knowledge article provides 2 scenarios where an underlying storage dependency on the target could be creating held space.

If the above does not help, or is not the case for your Delphix Engine, please log a support ticket and include a support diagnostics bundle as Michael suggested.

Thanks,
Sean

Thank you, Sir.
There was no action running that showed me reclaiming storage process was running. However after ten minutes, I saw in the home page of the admin GUI that the used storage was decreasing and after one hour the storage used by the received replicas has been freed.
So there is no need to open any ticket to support.
I'd like to give an idea: it will be useful to show the reclaiming storage process in the action running in order to notify the end user.
Best Regards.
