Database space allocation mechanism
I am relatively new to Intersystems cache database management. As I understand it, a database is set with a maximum size or unlimited and the size of each space allocation for the database is defined. My understanding is that the cache database will then manage the allotment of space to the database as the current space allocation is consumed. Though I do not know why one would want to do this, I have been told that the space allocation to a database can be set to be handled manually. This is something, if true, I was not aware of. If this is true, what is the mechanism to set this up and under what conditions would this be a preferred method of operation? I can not think of why or when this would be useful, but there maybe something that I am not aware of with cache administration.
