    i created a temporary tablespace without setup autoextent to one.

    later on, i
    alter database tempfile 'mytempfile' autoextend on ;

    i query dba_temp_file.
    it tells me increment_by is 1.


    what does that mean? why 1?

    then i
    alter database tempfile 'mytempfile' autoextend on next 10m.
    and query dba_temp_files again.
    it gives me 1280 for increment_by.


    if increment by is the number temp file will extend.
    then what will happen if i didn't give the value for next,
    how much will oracle extend, 1*8k?
    guru is on the way!!!!

    1280 is the number of blocks to extend (ie.

    YOu have a block size of 8192

    8192 * 1280 = 10485760

    10485760/1024 = 10240 (10 Mb)

    yes , i understand that.
    my question is when i didn't put value for next,
    it will gives me value 1,
    does that mean by default it will extend 1*8k which is 8k each time it need to extend?
