Growth of BlackBerry configuration database

Hi,

 

I found this info on the net and was wondering if someone could expand on it:

 

The following are the estimated growth rates that can be expected for the BlackBerry Configuration Database:  

•The database is initially set to 100MB and grows in 25MB increments.  

•The transaction logs for the database have the initial size of 25MB and grow in 5MB increments.  

•It is estimated that each BlackBerry device user will take no more than 1MB of database space; however this number may vary due to the environment and the BlackBerry Smartphone user.

 

I am interested in finding out how and when this incremental growth happens. This is not clear...

 

Thanks

Re: Growth of BlackBerry configuration database

So instead of 1mb, it's 3mb and that's on 4.1? I wonder what it is on 5.0.x

 

What about the incremental growth? How and when does that happen? any idea?

Re: Growth of BlackBerry configuration database

it is a SQL function so it will not increas by lets say 4 k as it would be extra work everytime the database grows a bit.

 

It wont grow unless it needs to, like adding in more users will need more space for the backup info
