TempDB Disk placement with Log files?


I've a couple of questions on setting up my lovely new server... I've
decided on R1 (2*36GB) for the OS, R1 (2*73GB) primarily for the Log
Files and R5 (5*73GB) for the Data files.
I was wondering if I could increase performance by partitioning off/
creating a new volume on my log array and placing on there the tempdb
and possibly another volume for the indexes.ndf.

Any ideas on whether its OK to have other volumes use the same pysical
disks as the log array?

And, is it best to have as many data files for each database as there
are on your disk array, so 5 in my case (or is it 4 as it's R5 , i.e.
1-n disks).

Setup Ideas welcomed!

I keep getting the following error message when I run a serie of SQL commands: Server: Msg 9002, Level 17, State 6, Line 15 The log file for database 'tempdb' is full. Back up the transaction log for the database to free up some log space. I have tried "dump transaction tempdb with no_log" right before I run the SQL command. But that doesn't help.

We had someone create an extra data file and log file for tempdb. So we currently have two data files and two log files. Is it possible to delete the newly created data and log files? If I just delete the physical files, I assume they'll get created as soon as SQL Server gets started back up. Any help would be great, since a single data and log file for tempdb is my goal. Thanks much.

Hi All, First, where can I get some questions of this sort answered? Preferably, are there good books or online guides that I can consult for these types of answers when necessary? 1. How do I know, when executing a query from Query Analyzer or otherwise, how many temporary tables will be needed, and how big they will be? 2. Where will those temporary tables be created? Always in tempdb?

I received an error that the log in tempdb was full, but the log and data segments are set to automatically grow with no limit AND there is plenty of available space on the disk. So I don't understand why this error occurred. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Tom

I am interested to hear if people think it would be a good idea to move the Master & TempDB to a different HD. Here is my DB Server's set up: 1. Processor: (1) AMD XP 2800 2. 1st HD (IDE 0) is the system & boot drive 3. (3) SCSI HD make up a hardware RAID level 0 (striped without parity)solution - these striped drives are just for my working DBs 4. (1) SCSI HD that's not doing anything.

has anyone met with this before? the setting is SQL2K with SP3 on a 2 node active-active W2K3 cluster. on one of the machine, it occasionally prompts for the following error: "The log file for database "tempdb" is full. Back up the transaction log for the database to free up some log space." the problem is, at the time of error, the tempdb tx log is only 200MB and there are over 50G disk space available.

Hi, The tempdb file on one of our servers grew very large and used all available disk space. This is SQL Server 2000 SP4. I have installed hotfix version 8.00.2187. I opened a profiler trace but can't still get to the root of the problem. Any help will be appreciated. Egbon *** Sent via Developersdex http://www.developersdex.com ***

I was able to find a few posts on this topic, but none of them quite seemed to fit the situation, so I'm hoping that someone else might be able to help me here. I have a client who is using SQL 2005 (sorry, don't have the exact build with me). They run a weekly process which causes TempDB to grow to over 100GB before it fails due to a full disk. Once it's grown to that size we can't seem to shrink it again short of restarting the server.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
