... and at 1 pm it was 31,795 KB - a fairly big jump, no?
Thanks for the reply. The log file is backed up every hour, and the database is backed up daily. The database is fairly new and all the data is needed, but there are read-only filegroups.
Right now there's no maintenance plan in place, which is why I'm concentrating on it now. I know that the indexes need an overhaul, but I was sidetracked by watching the growth of the log file. I do think this is the week of the month when it would have the most activity, but should I be backing up the log file more frequently than this?
