Data / Data files / Database GROWTH
I have a practical question on reading / determining the exact fluctuations in the sizeof
I am publishing this question in the oracle section, as my database is oracle, but if I am
not wrong, all this should be valid for all databases.
So, the question itself: I have a system, where all the datafiles / tablespaces are set to
AUTOEXTEND, the size for each growth is 200 MB (meaning, if growing automatically,
the increment size will be 200 MB). Now I would like to see, if datafiles grew automatically,
lets say for today! And if yes - by how much increments.
Furthermore, I would like to ask - browsing ST04, in Space / Database / Overview on the
history tab - all the daily / weekly / monthly changes - how to evaluate, whether this was
only an "internal" growth, when the database grew in account of decreasing the free space
in the DB itself, and when it has also caused a data file to grow automatically, as it has its
AUTOEXTEND option enabled ???
