Adding storage space automatically

Configure the database server to add storage space automatically when more space is needed. Add entries to the storage pool that the server can use to expand a space and set the threshold for expanding a space.

Prerequisite: Automatic storage provisioning requires HCL Informix® version 11.70.

When you configure the server to add storage space automatically, you use space more effectively and ensure that space is allocated as necessary.

When more space is needed, the server expands the storage space (dbspace, sbspace, blobspace, temporary dbspace, or temporary sbspace), by adding a chunk to the storage space. If the storage space is a non-mirrored dbspace or a temporary dbspace, the server can also extend a chunk in the storage space. You can also expand a space or extend a chunk immediately instead of waiting for the database server to take the action.
