6.7. Monitoring Tablespaces

Satellite Server 5.6 and later uses an embedded PostgreSQL database as the default database configuration. PostgreSQL does not require manual allocation of more space for the Satellite schema as it grows. PostgreSQL expands the schema of its own accord, provided that free disk space is available.
To check the database's size, run the db-control report command as the root user.
To check the size of each table in the database, run the db-control tablesizes command as the root user.
If you are using an external Oracle database, consult your database administrator for information about how to monitor tablespaces.
