We are running a database on SQL Server 2000 and I would like to monitor the growth of the log file as it recently maxed and crashed the live system.

For instance if I allocate 10GB of space to the log file i would like a stored procedure to alert me if it reaches a certain threshold; e.g 80%.

Can someone assist me with this?

Thanks

Indeed you are right but i would like multiple safeguards as recently the backups failed and the notifications were not sent out.
