Description
DefaultAllocation
CHARACTER
Readable, Writeable
Set to a preference that decides whether to allocate partitions when the tenant is created, when tables are multi-tenant enabled, or new multi-tenant tables, indexes, or LOB fields are created. This preference can have the following values:
*"Immediate" — Allocate immediately using default areas. Allocates all partitions according to the defaults when the tenant is created.
*"Delayed" — Delay the physical allocation of the partitions. Sets the partitions' AllocateState properties to "Delayed", which allows them to be allocated by executing the Allocate( ) method on the ITenant object.
*"None" — No automatic allocation. Sets the partitions' AllocateState properties to "None", which means that the allocation can only be done on each individual partition by executing the Allocate( ) method on the IPartition object.
Note: If you intend to make a tenant a member of a tenant group, set this property to "Delayed" so no storage is allocated to the tenant before you have allocated storage to the group.
