Deleting a 2TB FC LUN. Will this cause high IO

Hi the LUN is no longer used. It was the source of a snapmirror. - the target is now the live production LUN - after the mirror was broken. Now to remove the source. (2TB) - FC LUn. - will doing so cause high disk IO, take a long time, and can it be done in business hours?

the target is a vm connected to the new volume (broken off mirror) - by iscsi - has been running fine for a week now

Best to do it during off business hours. Preferably weekend. I don't think that will cause any high IO issues.
