how to change the size of data volume

Currently the data volume will be created automatically when the data is exceed 90%(which is set by myself)

but the auto created data volume's size is only 1024000KB(1G),how can I change the default size of the auto created data volume?

and if the data volume was used,what will happen if I delete the data volume( will the data in the data volume move to another data volume automatically?)

with auto extend enabled, MaxDB will just add a volume with the same size as the previously added volume.

If you really want to, you can override this since MaxDB 7.9, but that feature is well hidden:

1. Start a dbmcli session
2. set the 'DBM Server parameter' AutoExtSize

Now, every new volume added with auto extend enabled will use that size.

In detail:
- to display a list of the current DBM Server parameter configuration, just type "dbm_configget all".
- you can add a paramter with "dbm_configset AutoExtSize 100000"
- if you later want to remove that DBM Server parameter, use "dbm_configset AutoExtSize" without giving any further value specification.
