    Hello,

     

    >aggr status <aggr_name> -v

     

    And if you want to modify raid size of a raid group:
    >aggr options <aggr_name> raidsize <value>

     

    If you want to fill your exsisting raid groups you need to use -g option when using >aggr add command.
    If you change the raid group size and add some disks to your aggregate without -g option, in your case it would fill the rg1
    first with the new rg size value and then start a new raid group rg2.
    Rg0 would remain smaller. -g option allows you to speficy rg where the disks are added.
