How to Truncate Log Files for Microsoft SQL Server with NAKIVO
Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most popular and powerful database servers. In general, it stores and manages plenty of business-critical data. To ensure data consistency, the SQL Server logs every database transaction completed by the server and creates log files called transaction logs. Any changes in the database are first written to the RAM, then written to the transaction log, and in a very short time committed to the database. SQL Server can accumulate a very large number of transaction log files. These files can be stored for a very long time filling up all of the available storage space, which may disrupt the normal operation of the server and even become the cause of data loss. To avoid such an unfavorable situation, you need to find a way to get rid of the SQL transaction logs.
So why not remove these transaction log files, but have their copy stored in a safe place for recovery in case of a disaster? One of the easiest ways to do this is to use a 3rd party backup solution, such as NAKIVO Backup & Replication, which has a very useful and easy-to-use SQL Log Truncation feature.
