Dear Friends,

We have SAP R/3 4.7 Enterprise edition, Oracle database & Operating System Redhat Linux 2.4.9.

We increase our Tablespace PSAPPML by 1 datafile every 10 days once when it reaches 99%. 1 datafile Size is 2 GB. Is it opitmal increase. ... ?

Which is the best method increase 1 datafile every week or else bulk datafile increase ie 2 Or 3 datafile at a time once in a Month ... ?

The problem is PSAPPML tablespace soon reaches 99% by our present scenario. Presently our oracle mount point is

Mount Point : /oracle
Allocated : 255 GB
Free : 86 GB

Could you kindly clarify ... ?

Thanking you.
P. Jegatheeswaran.

May or may not be.
Depends on your Backup/OS limit/oracle configurations.
But at one fine time, you will hit the wall ( reaching maxdatafiles/db_files).
You can just extend your datafile (instead adding a new one), but your backup/ recovery options should be considered.

I would be more interested in identifying why tablespace is increasing 2g within a week ( Unless you really load 2G worth data with the timeframe).

Are you using DMT or LMT? (Dictionary or Locally managed tablespace?).

If you are in DMT, try to migrate to LMT ( preferably to 10g/9i).
ELSE ( if it is case that you have live with DMT),
make sure you have tablespaces/objects defined as INITIAL=NEXT and PCTINCREASE=0

Do you happen to do massive deletes/inserts.
May be the tables need the HWM to reset?
Do you ever coalesce the tablespace?

Are you doing the so-called 'preventive maintenance' thingies like
regular/scheduled online rebuild of indexes ?
