Checkup Documentation

SQL server log file too big

Summary

If the log file gets too big it can cause your server to run low on disk space which can cause performance issues up to and including your site going down. The goal is to allow reasonable growth of the database while maintaining consistent performance. If the log file grows too large then it is necessary to either add space or do some data cleanup. We recommend keeping the log file under 5000 MB.


Check Logic

Constant Care for Kentico will ensure the SQL log file size (in MB) is no more than 5,000 (default)

You can manage your settings for this checkup in the Constant Care for Kentico admin settings.


Verifying The Check

You should check with your System Administrator if you are experiencing disk space issues.

Changes to your site should only be made by an experienced Kentico Xperience developer. If you need assistance in making these changes please reach out to the Toolkit For Kentico team to be connected with a Kentico Xperience partner.
