when i am generating report, i am getting time out error. but some time the report was generating properly (it will take time coz heavy data). but this time i am getting time out error. it is not one report, more reports giving time out error. Here i am giving one procedure details:

1. in that procedure no physical tables that is almost temp tables (i have created index on that table).

please find the database & server configuration details:

Have you noticed this strange values on your DB log:
available free space (-23.37 MB (-4674%))

I recommend that you run a DBCC check on your database.

currently we are using large temp tables in our procedures..so temp log size is varying..after shrinking templog...same time out error. i have to change memory configurations or any other solution???

You are going to have to post the actual query that is timing out.

What is happening is that as you have added data, it is taking longer to process and unless you are prepared to optimize the queries in the Stored Procedure you will have to resort to lengthening the timeout.

From looking at your stored procedure, it looks like you have your (or your DBA) work cut out for you.  You are going to have to do some homework.  What I would focus on is to lose the CURSOR, I suspect that is your bottleneck and there may not be any need for it or the temp table it uses.  In other words, see if you can change History_Omni_MembershipLedger_Detail to a function.  But in general, in order to optimize this Stored Procedure you are going to have to take a dispassionate look at it and re-write most of it.

Good luck.

>>no perfect solution<<
Did you expect to do your work for you.  If that is the case, I am afraid it should be clarified that EE is not intended for that purpose.

Agaon, good luck.
