Increase the Size of Root Filesystem of an OCI-C Database Cloud (DBaaS) Instance (Doc ID 2344382.1)

Last updated on MARCH 12, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Database Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There is a documented procedure to increase the size of a storage volume (including root volume) for an IaaS instance. However, this functionality is not available for a DBaaS instance. This document outlines steps to increase the size of the root filesystem of a Database Cloud instance. This document assumes that the root filesystem is LVM based. If this is not the case, do not follow the instructions in this document and contact Oracle Support for assistance.

Note :
01) The scaleup operation adds a throughput storage volume to the instance. However, the boot volume is of latency type. So, there would be a performance difference between these storage volumes.
02) OCI Classic supports only 10 block storage volumes attached to a compute node. If you have reached the limit, you would not be able to use this procedure.
