We have a sql instance (used by development and testing teams) that's on a test server and it has 28 databases (the size of all the databases put together is about 350 GB). All of the databases are in simple recovery mode. We have transactional replication on this instance and it has one publication. It is also a subscriber for 3 subscriptions.
We take full backups of all the databases every night. At this point, we don't have any sql job that truncates/ shrinks the log files of the databases and as a result the size of the log files of all the databases put together is about 60 GB. What's the best way to manage the log files and also reduce the log space taken?
SQL Version is : 2008 SP2
