Bursting can be useful if you need additional, temporary resources, but there is an added cost when you use the extra resources that bursting allows. It’s important to know if bursting is enabled for your subscription and how to manage and monitor your subscription resources.
Bursting Up is enabled by default for all non-metered subscriptions. If you want to disable bursting to avoid overages for your service, then contact Oracle Support and raise a service request. When you disable bursting, you won’t be allowed to exceed your resource capacity and hence, you won’t be billed for overages.
If you have any questions about the bursting capabilities of your account, then contact your Oracle Sales representative.
