Hi,

Running bulk operations increase sql server 2008 tempdb size a lot. Is there anyway to put a limit on its size? I dont mind opertions getting slow.

Set the recovery model of tempdb to SIMPLE. This model automatically reclaims log space to keep space requirements small.

to switch recovery model

Use ALTER DATABASE, as follows:

USE master;

ALTER DATABASE database_name SET RECOVERY SIMPLE;

Open in new window



thing to consider before changing to simple recovery
