I'm wondering if it's prudent to adjust the Database "Initial Size" value for my environment?
SQL version: 2014
Recovery model: Full
Database Size:" 158GB
I recent ran a utility which indicated to me that: "89 growths took more than 15 seconds each. Consider setting file autogrowth to a smaller increment."
Autogrowth / Maxsize setting appears to be default of: 10% unlimited, and we DO see unexplained performance issues on this database.
Does it make sense to calculate an anticipated DB size,(for say, 1-3 years down the road?) reset Initial Size to that size, and keep the autogrowth setting as-is?
I've also seen on Microsoft's site that the growth % should be about 1/8" the size of the database...Should I change autogrowth from 10% to around 13GB?
