Transaction Log Stairway Series available as a book

CAMBRIDGE, UK, May 22, 2013 Red Gate Books has just released SQL Server Transaction Log Management, a free eBook on maintaining and troubleshooting the enigmatic transaction log.

From Online Stairway to Printed Book

Tony Davis and Gail Shaw’s popular stairway series on SQL Server Transaction Log Management is the first time Red Gate’s publishing team have turned a series into a book.

SQL Server Transaction Log Management assumes the reader is a beginner in transaction log management, providing steps from the basics through to advanced topics and troubleshooting.

Essential tips in a crisis

The transaction log is rarely a cause for concern when a SQL Server database is running well – but in a crisis, a full understanding of how it operates can make all the difference.

The new eBook, by veteran authors Tony Davis and Gail Shaw, covers everything a DBA needs to know about managing the log file, including backup and restore, dealing with overgrown logs, and optimizing log throughput.

“We strive to offer just the right level of detail so that every DBA can perform all of the most important aspects of transaction log management,” says Davis.

Putting it into practice

Together with the free eBook, Red Gate is offering a free trial of its SQL Backup Pro tool to help put the advice from the book into practice.

You can download your copy of SQL Server Transaction Log Management here, and as Davis says, “control your transaction log, so that it doesn't control you.”

In addition to the free download, you can purchase a printed copy from Amazon US or from Amazon UK. Free printed copies are also available for a limited time if you would like to review the book. If you are interested in reviewing, please contact melanie.townsend@red-gate.com or fillout this form.
