  • Publication number: 20210056072
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices supporting data storage are described. A database server may store information in a group of files. As more information is stored at the database in the files, the sizes of the files may be increased. Techniques are described for uniformly growing files in the group of files to maintain a similar size for the files as the amount of storage increases. These techniques may prevent one file from becoming disproportionately larger than another file of the file group, supporting efficient read and write operations at the database. The file growth may be based on the file sizes as well as an amount of storage to be added for the group of files. For example, an application managing the file growth may sort the files by size, track uniform growth running totals, and determine file growth commands based on the uniform growth running totals.
