    If this size increases every - day, week you need to worry and analyze why?

    Size does matter if you have less disk space, otherwise....

    Prolly a more important thing to worry about is recovery. Bigger data files take longer to recover.

    On the other hand, fewer files are somewhat easier to manage.

    My suggestion: use ASM with OMF; set it .. and forget it!
