Autonomous oracle database OCPU scaling


I have a question about the auto scaling feature of oracle autonomous database.

What are the specific rules for up scaling a OCPU? I'm not able to find specific rules for this. I do know that Oracle can use up to three times the reserved OCPU's for auto scaling. But when does an autonomous database scale up from, let's say, 4 OCPU's to 5. What threshhold(s) does the database have to reach to scale OCPU's up/down?

Kind regards,
