Ensure that Storage Auto-Growth feature is enabled for your production Azure PostgreSQL database servers. Storage auto-growth prevents your PostgreSQL servers from running out of storage and becoming read-only.
This rule resolution is part of the Conformity solution.
When working with production data and the database storage auto-growth is enabled, the disk storage automatically grows without impacting the workload. You can add additional storage capacity during and after the creation of the PostgreSQL server, and allow the system to grow storage automatically based on the storage consumption of your workload. For PostgreSQL database servers with less than equal to 100GB provisioned storage, the provisioned storage size is increased by 5GB as soon as the free storage is below 10% of the provisioned storage space. For database servers with more than 100 GB of provisioned storage, the provisioned storage size is increased by 5% when the free storage space is below 5% of the provisioned storage size.
To determine if storage auto-growth is enabled for your Azure PostgreSQL database servers, perform the following actions:
