I have the folloing error in the SQL log.  What does this mean and how can this error be fixed? Thanks in advance.

autogrow of file 'dbname_log' in database 'dbname' was cancelled by user or timed out after 30123 milliseconds. Use ALTER DATABASE to set a smaller FILEGROWTH value for this file or to explicitly set a new file size.
