SQL 2000 Tempdb mdf size, cause and resolution

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

Hello SQLers,


I have an old SQL 2000 database on a critical system which is in need of attention.  I am new to supporting SQL, so bare with me.  The combined database sizes are about 60GBs total.  There is a 'History' database which is about 32GBs.  all of the rest are quite small with the exception of tempdb.  The tempdb log file is tiny.  The tempdb mdf file currently is about 22GBs.  Space is limited on the server and backups fail when the 'history' database tries to backup.

Here's some data:

USE tempdb 
EXEC sp_spaceused

Multiple tempdb file size


Hello there,

I am little bit confused about multiple tempdb files.

Suppose i want to place tempdb on its own disk of 100 gb, and want to set the size of tempdb to 100 gb. So in near future it probably do not need to autogrow. To impliment multiple tempdb file i.e. 8 (as per MS recommendation), because we have 4 quadra core processor that is total 16 processors. So how to set size for 8 tempdb file.

Pl provide detail with step.

Detect Browser Screen Size??


Hi Everyone,  I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!

  How does anyone reliably get the browser's screen size?? Do I have to revert to some kind of JavaScript? If so, where can I read more about it? Will it be any more reliable? Someone must have an idea about this. Thanks in advance!!

Obtain mobile device screen size



I am trying to get the screenHeight and width:


 // Get MobileCapabilities from current Request.Browser
        MobileCapabilities currentCapabilities = (MobileCapabilities)Request.Browser;
        // get a property of the  browser 
        Response.Write(currentCapabilities.ScreenPixelsHeight +  " <br>");
        Response.Write(currentCapabilities.ScreenPixelsWidth  + " <br>");


 but this is always show that the Height is 480 & the width is 640

Data Points: XML Features in SQL Server 2000


SQL ServerT 2000 includes several XML features that let you transform relational rowsets into hierarchical XML documents, read XML documents, and bulk load data via XML. For example, you can pass an XML document to a stored procedure, join the XML to some tables and return a rowset, or even modify data in the database.

Timers: Implement a Continuously Updating, High-Resolution Time Provider for Windows


The timestamps that you can obtain from Windows NT are limited to a maximum resolution of 10 or 15 milliseconds, depending on the underlying hardware. At times, such as when you need to timetag frequent events, it is desirable to achieve a higher resolution. For example, what if you want to be able to contact a thread or perform some other task at intervals more frequent than 10 milliseconds? Suggested ways of achieving better resolution include using performance counters in conjunction with the sytem time to calculate smaller time increments. But using performance counters is a technique that presents its own problems. This article shows one possible way of overcoming limitations inherent in this approach.

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP


Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.
