Help. What is mean this warning?

Using default stripesize 64.00 KiB.
For thin pool auto extension activation/thin_pool_autoextend_threshold should be below 100.
Logical volume "snap_vm-101-disk-0_Restore190610" created.
WARNING: Sum of all thin volume sizes (2.24 TiB) exceeds the size of thin pool raid/raid and the size of whole volume group (1.82 TiB)!
Did you tried to read the message? :)

Currently you have more disk space assigned to your VMs as you physically have. This means, if all you VM, try to allocate the whole disk space, you will immediately run out of space and all of your VMs are stopped to serving any I/O.
