SQL Server Transaction logs growing rapidly (30 GB in a single day)
DB - MS SQL 2012
The transaction log file is maintained by Microsoft to enable a rollback of the database should a major database failure occur.
Set the UIM database Recovery model to Simple
Deactivate the NAS and Data_engine probe.
Modify the NAS.cfg file to reduce the retention period :-
transactionlog_compress = 1
transactionlog_age = 1
transactionlog_summary = 1
Modify the data_engine.cfg to delete historical Data older than from 72 days to 10 days
Activate the NAS and Data_engine probe.
If you cannot use Simple recovery model you will need to make sure your backup process is check pointing the log file and clearing transactions. If you only backup once a day the log file will grow all day long and then be cleared during the backup process. Keep this in mind as you see that file increase in size.
