SP to determine database file growth at intervals

By Neil Jacobson,

I wrote this SP to be run from a job every night. Change the myDB reference to be a database on your system for DBA use.

I just set up a job to run:
Exec sp_CatchFileChanges

Then I run in another step:

Select * from mydb.dbo.tbl_sysaltfiles_3

and output to a log file.

Alternatively you could insert into another table with a time stamp.

This gives me advanced warning if the database physical files are growing rapidly.
