Not possible with a memory-mapped DB.
Others can explain better in detail why.
"No limit" is kind of a pointless phrase. The physical limit will always be
the size of free space in your filesystem. Aside from that you can simply do
what the documentation says - configure a huge size and let the DB grow
dynamically within that size. Use 64TB or whatever, and forget about it.
