SQL Server Auto grow

2013/01/16

I had a great response to my blog post and poll last week about how DBAs use auto grow. In the main it seems people use auto grow like I do. As a backup but it does not replace proper monitoring or capacity planning.

You can see the results below

As you can see although most of the respondents use it as a backup there is still a fair few that use it as their database sizing tool. I think some of the comments in the original Auto-grow -  on or off straw poll post l put the argument for using auto grow as a backup perfectly and I urge you to check those out.

Thanks for everyone who took part in the poll and took the time to leave a comment, your feedback is much appreciated.
