Hi,

There was a sudden increase in the size of the production database. The database size grew by around 1GB & the transaction log file size also grew by around 1.3 GB. Under normal circumstances the database grows at the rate of 10-20 MB per day. I did check the size of tables & the indexes, there was not much change. We make a backup of transaction logs every hour & i came to notice that between size of the backup file at 4PM was 1.38 GB whereas under normal circumstances size of backup file ranges from 1MB-16MB.

How can I come to know what transaction has caused the sudden increase in the database size.

regards,
Nithin

Did an index rebuild job run around that time?

to get an overall idea.

what is the overal size of the database and transaction log?
what are the autogrow values of the files?
what is the free space of the database and the transaction log?
