How To Change DB System Shape in VMBM.?

After you provision a virtual machine DB system, you can change the shape at any time to adapt to changes in performance needs. For example, you might require a system with a higher number of OCPUs, or you might want to reduce costs by reducing the number of OCPUs.


See Virtual Machine DB Systems for resource details for each shape in a series.



The shape-changer operation takes place in a rolling fashion for multi-node DB systems, allowing you to change the shape with no database downtime.


 Changing the shape does not impact the amount of storage available to the DB system. However, the new shape can have different memory and network bandwidth characteristics, and you might need to reapply any customizations to these aspects after the change.
