Scale the DB System
You can perform the following scaling operation on a DB system.
Scale Up the Storage for a DB System
If a DB system requires more block storage, you can increase the storage at any time.
If you are scaling either data storage or recovery area storage from a value less than 10,240 GB (10 TB) to a value exceeding 10,240 GB, perform the scaling in two operations. First, scale the system to 10,240 GB. After this first scaling operation is complete and the system is in the "available" state, perform a second scaling operation, specifying your target storage value above 10,240 GB. Attempting to scale from a value less than 10,240 GB to a value higher than 10,240 GB in a single operation can lead to a failure of the scaling operation.
- Open the navigation menu. Select Oracle Database, then select Oracle Base Database.
- Choose your Compartment. A list of DB systems is displayed.
- In the list of DB systems, find the DB system you want to scale up and click its highlighted name. The DB system details are displayed.
- Click Scale storage up.
- In the Scale storage up panel, scale your storage as needed:
Note:The Available storage (GB) value you specify during provisioning determines the maximum total storage available through scaling. The total storage available for each choice is detailed in Storage Scaling Considerations for Databases Using Fast Provisioning.
The Choose storage management software and Configure storage performance sections display the values you had selected while provisioning and cannot be changed.
In the Available data storage (GB), select the amount of BlockStorage in GB to allocate to the DB system. Available storage can be scaled up as needed after provisioning your DB system.
In the Recovery area storage (GB), select the amount of storage required for recovery log data (RECO storage). The recovery area storage is determined based on the storage selected.
The read-only Total storage (GB) field displays the total amount of storage that will be used by the DB system, including storage required by Oracle's DB system software. The size of the backup determines the minimum value for available storage.
The Expected theoretical max IOPS for data storage displays the maximum theoretical IOPS that is achievable for storage you have selected.
Note:Oracle recommends keeping recovery storage at 20% of total storage or higher. Oracle charges for the total storage used, including data storage, recovery storage, and storage required for the system software.
- Click Update.
