Hello all,

I have a DB that data file is 90 GB and the log file after the maintanance jobs have grew to 30GB and some of the jobs didnt finish,

The database is on Full recovery mode and the transaction log backup runs every 15 minutes.

How do i know what more space do i need for these jobs to run succesfully or for the future is there any metric i can do to analyse it?

There are a lot of suggestions that you can change it to simple and run those jobs but i dont want to break the log chain.

how can you determine the log disk space?

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Changing to Simple may not make any difference for index maintenance. To rebuild an index, you need log space approximately equal to the size of that index. It might be an idea to back up the log more frequently during such maintenance, just in case you go through more than one large rebuild every 15 minutes.
