Hi Brian

Thanks for the detailed write-up. Very interesting and definitely worth keeping in mind.

I noticed that there is no mention of innodb_data_file_path, which while not preventing your issue would have solved it immediately (by appending a new datafile to the list — see https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/innodb-resize-system-tablespace.html). Its looks like its not a user modifiable RDS parameter but did the Amazon engineers mention it is a possibility?
