As I read the documentation: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/sql-database/sql-database-file-space-management the "Used space" will keep growing, and I myself need to shrink it. That is perfectly fine, and as expected. I can also see that the allocated space is a bit larger than the used space. This is how i hope it works:
- when used space is nearing the allocated space, some more space is allocated
- when used space is at max size we have no more space available thus we run out of space
I am a bit scared that I have misunderstood something and my database (and site) will stop working when used space is at allocated space. I am kind of new into the world of Azure.
It was something i just noticed today. I have a monitor set up to monitor data space used (in percent), and i will be alerted when it hit max. But i will never hit max if it doesn't grow beyond allocated space.
