This parameter indicates the number of containers that will be created within the default table spaces. It also shows the information used when you created your database, whether it was specified explicitly or implicitly on the CREATE DATABASE command.

This parameter only applies to SMS table spaces; the CREATE TABLESPACE statement does not use it in any way.
