I'd also recommend you take a look through "SQL Server Transaction Log Management" by Tony Davis and Gail Shaw.

You can obtain an electronic copy of the book from this site: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/books/94938/

There's also a SQLServerCentral stairway on the topic: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/stairway/73776/

Together, that should provide you with everything you ever wanted to know about managing the SQL Server transaction log.

Please advise me how can i take action here to reduce the log


Have you monitored the used space in the log over the course of several days? If so, what's the maximum size that the used portion of the log reaches?

That sentence makes no sense.

If you found a max of 7GB, I'd probably shrink the log to 10GB. However, make sure that the max is in fact the max with all normal maintenance and workload operations inside the times you've monitored.
