The TEMPDB transaction log file keeps growing.The database server is new and the transaction log was presized to 1 GB on installation. After installing a number of databases, the log file grew over a day to 38GB. Issuing a manual checkpoint was the only way to free some space to allow it to be shrunk back to a usable size. The usage of the file is still going up.
I am struggling to find what process is causing the log to be used so heavily. Looking at the log reuse wait desc for tempdb returns "Nothing" and tempdb itself isn't being used very much or growing in size.
Hello all I am new here so I am sorry if this question has been asked 1,000,000 times.
First let me describe my environment:
VM-Ware ESX 3.01 3.0Ghz (Dedicated to VM) 3.0 GB RAM (Dedicated to VM) Windows Server 2003 SP2 SQL Server 2005 SP2 Spotlight for SQL Server Quest SQL Watch
Now the issue:
We are in current development of a new manufacturing system so the above system is just a development box at this stage. The problem that I am having is that the tempdb log file seems to grow out of control, and if I do not have time to shrink it, I have to bounce the mssql service in order to do anything once the disk is completly full. At one point I even made a job to shrink the log file every 15 minutes to try and prevent the uncontrolled growth.
I have researched this everywhere and it really is starting to get frustrating. I am highly leaning towards the application that is utilizing the database is heavily dependant on #temp tables. So I found this query to return me the top colums being used in the tempdb.
SELECT OBJECT_NAME(id), rowcnt
WHERE OBJECT_NAME(id) LIKE '#%'
ORDER BY rowcnt DESC
And I get the table that is using up the most rows.
WHERE OBJECT_NAME(id) LIKE '#4440A7FE'
After doing this I figured out that there is something that is writing to the tempdb around every 15 seconds about 100000+ rows at a time. And the alarming thing about it is that the record "rowmodctr" is already over 1 billion. So that leads me to beleive that this has modified rows over 1 billion times since I last rebooted the server a week ago.
So the main question that I have is. Is there a way to query what is inside that '#4440A7FE' table, so that I can pin it down to a session?
Also I have already said to the development team to use "derived tables" instead of temp tables, but they just fight with me all the time and blame the problem on hardware and configuration.
Please please help me with this as it getting really frustrating I am so sick of shriking that file. And sometimes it grows more that 3GB in less than 15 minutes.
Hello when I start executing a transact SQL process, my tempdb file is about 5Mb and It's log file is 1Mb, when the process finishes the log file never gets cleaned again... so It uses a lot of hard disk space and I can't run the process again...
Pd. the process has a "begin tran" and a "commit" at the end...
I need some help understanding the benefit of creating tempdb with one file per processor. I believe the benefit has something to do with the way SQL Server utilizes processor threads, but I'm a bit weak on the details.
I have the classic "tempdb-out-of-space" problem. Unfortunately, my server fails to reboot properly as tempdb is located on the C: drive which is now completely full. While I understand the changes required to prevent this from happening again, I want to know if it will even reboot if I delete tempdb.mdf and tempdb.ldf. I've read conflicting information on MSDN about default tempdb file size: - files are built to the default size (I will be fine) - files are built to the same size as before (problem) Which is true for SQL 2005?
there is a sql job that failed yesterday. This job calls a store procedure. This store procedure doesn't use any temp table. But there are lots of updates and inserts clauses.
application log shows: Error: 9002, Severity: 17, State: 2 The log file for database 'tempdb' is full. Back up the transaction log for the database to free up some log space. ---------------------------------------------------------------- tempdb.mdf 1.37gb templog.ldf 19.6 mb
these files are located on D: drive and D drive has 52gb free space
HiI am getting this common error once or twice a day:Error: 9002, Severity: 17, State: 2The log file for database 'tempdb' is full. Back up the transactionlog for the database to free up some log space.provided......1. My log file drive has more than 20 GB free out of 30 GB2. Both data file & log file has default setting on unrestricted filegrowth by 10%3. Currently we moved from SQL 7.0 to SQL 2000 & the load in the userside also doubled4. We can't do the temporary solution like restarting the server orSQL service, because the application is a real time system with muchless manual interaction.Thanks in advance.RegardsSeni
We have a problem with the size of the tempdb.mdf file. The tempdb had grown to 25Gb and consumed all the available disk space. SQL server was restarted and the tempdb was reset back to the default size. The following day the tempdb suddenly increased in size from 200mb to 25GB within a very short space of time. There were a couple of event log entries from sqlservger regarding the lack of disk. Since then the server is running without any problems but the level of free space is virtually zero on the drive with tempdb.mdf file.
What would cause the tempdb to grow suddenly and to this size?
I'm currently running the command below and getting this error message. I am getting it every few seconds for a couple hours now. Seems to have started when I started this SPROC below. I'm just over 2 hours into running.
Not sure what this means yet, any help is much appreciated. Desperately trying to resolve this urgent matter!
thanks once again! mike123

Database MDF is 27806 MB and I tried to shrink but unable to shrink. It is production server.I do not want Restart sql server.There is no open transaction.
In tweaking performance of tempdb by adding add'l data files I want to reset back to defaults and remove all add'l files I've created. I was not able to do it for most as they were in use, but by starting the server in single-user mode with all other sql services shut off, and using sqlcmd I was able to use the ALTER DATABASE tempdb REMOVE FILE <tempdev#> to remove the files... except for one.
I have an instance with 4 datafiles for tempdb each set at initial size of 4G and growth rate of 100MB. After some time the initial file sizes seem to have changed automatically. They now read 3962,100,3688 and 2847 respectively. Is this something done by SQL Server itself? I cannot imagine that it was done manually.
I don't think there was a restart after the initial sizes of 4G were set, could this be related to the problem?
"tempdb is skipped. You cannot run a query that requires tempdb"?
We're running a .Net web application with a SQL Server 2000 backend, and we get the error intermittently. Restarting the SQL Server service seems to fix it, as it causes tempdb to be rebuilt, but this isn't a long term solution. Any direction or hints would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! - Mike
In my environment, there is maintenance plan configured on one of the server and while running DBCC checkdb on a database of size around 200GB, log file usage of tempdb is increasing and causing the maintenance job to fail.
What can I do to make the maintenance job run successfully, size of the tempdb database is only 50GB and recovery model is set to simple. It cannot be increased as the mount point on which it is residing is 50GB.
THis is sql server 6.5 question. I have tempdb data device size default 2 MB, which has completely filled up. I am trying to expand data device to it. I created new device tempdb_data_ext (250 MB) and tried to expand tempdb data device. But everytime I do it, it ends up adding space to tempdb log device. How can I expand tempdb data device?
TEMPDB in one of our production servers does not clear up so every three to four weeks I have to restart NT. Nothing like this happens on any of the other three servers. Does anybody know where I should look at to correct the problem. I sure would appreciate it. Thanks Shashu
I have never done this before and thought I would ask. Is it possible to detach the tempdb database, move it to another drive or partition, and then re-attach it? What would be the downside or side-affects to doing such a thing?
Error : 933, Severity: 22, State: 1 Logical page 258 of the log encountered while retrieving highest timestamp in database 'tempdb' is not the last page of the log and we are not currently recovering that database.
I use sqlserver -T4022 to start my SQL Server since it will not start with out it. When I start sqlserver without the option, it tells me that
Error : 615, Severity: 21, State: 1 Unable to find database table id = 2, name = 'tempdb'.
I need to move tempdb to another drive,also increase the size.Largest database is 15GB.Can anyone suggest the size and also the exact commands to move.Do I need to backup the databases before I do this task?If SP1 is not installed,will it be o.k for me for this tempdb problem.If we have a larger tempdb like 4GB,will it effect anything?...Urgent!!
