System disk space is initially allocated as:

  • A spool space reserve, which guarantees a certain amount of space remains unused for data storage so it is available for query execution.
  • Permanent space assigned to a top level administrative user to contain other users, databases, and tables.

You should monitor disk space usage and set up alerts that track usage patterns, for the capacity planning purposes.
