SQL Temp File Overgrowth

There are a lot of reasons why the Tempdb grows. One of them is rebuilding indexes in SQL server. If you have any automated maintenance jobs in SQL this may be part of the issue.

In an ideal world you would have the tempdb files stored on a separate volume away from your progress/e9 temp files. You should also have it properly sized to help prevent autogrowth of the tempdb. If you do have your progress/e9 temp files on the same disk as the Tempdb.mdf and tempdb.ldf files then this should be a must. It will prevent uncontrolled autogrowth of these files (by default 10% of current size) stopping unwanted disk activity when you least need it.

Hope the information helps.

Cheers
Simon

We are occasionally having a situation where the SQL Temp file grows and grows until it fills the drive where the temp files are located.

When this happens, Windows generates a message warning that the Temp drive is running out of space and some users sessions will get a (7224) error and need to be reset.

I have had this happen in the past and so I keep some 4GB "junk files" that I can delete to free up space on the partition which keeps the system operational until I can schedule a full reboot to clear the SQL Temp file.

Under normal circumstances the SQL Temp file does not come close to using the 100+GB of space available.

Has anyone else seen this problem ?
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to pin down the cause ?

TIA,
Neil
I assume you mean the tempdb?

Usually I have seen this when there is heavy use of the DMT tool or
updatable BAQs.

I can't tell you why it happens, only that I have seen it happen in those
instances.

Easiest solution has been a restart of the SQL service, which also requires
an Epicor Restart.
