I am running SQL server 2000 an a windows platform.

Tempdb is on a separate disk, with about 2,5 gigs of space.
There are 9 databases that access tempdb on the server. My problem is that tempdb does not seem to be clearing old transactions.

It gets full almost once every week and I have to restart the server in order to clear tempdb.
Is there anyone who has a solution.

There are may be many reasons why this happens.

This is from MS

One that I have found in my environment is:
If stored procedures using temp tables, at the end of stored proc drop temp tables after selecting the result set.

Example (At the end of sp):

select * from #temptable
drop table #temptable

Also, you don't have to restart the server, you can compress tempdb just like any other database....
