Temp DB occupies maximum space

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am having issues with temp db space, which grows very large every week, I heard shrinking temp db is not a good idea to do, which I am doing it now temporarily to shrink the space, can someone help me how to troubleshoot not to increase the temp db space, I am using #temp tables, cursors, unions and indexes on some of the temp tables in sp's, does it make any difference if i drop the temp tables and indexes after the proc ran successfully?.

Image processing, determine white space and crop



I have created a image upload for our ID card system to allow users to upload new images, edit them and submit for approval.  This is all working well with a combination of asp.net (c#) and jquery to give a seemless editor etc.

We have had a few users who I cannot believe have scanned a photo of themself and then just submitted it with the A4 page of white and little photo.

I am wondering if anyone can help with a suggestion on how I could possibly reduce the load of these coming through (I can't believe they can be this stupid), it stipulates UK passport standards.

Would my only option be to check for a single continues colour that occurs and if it reaches a certain percentage point say 60% then to just send back an error stating they need to crop the image.

Can anyone help with providing sample or that I can use to move this one on.

I am still in disbelief on this one.  the other one is they take a photo of whole body and other in it and cut straight down middle chopping the people out but supplying a photo that no use for an id photo card....but that I can't imagine being solved programatically as I need to determine where their face dimensions are and what percentage of the actual photo is taken up by it and if it below a threshold reject it.

Bitmap FromFile space "file not found"


I am using aspose.slides to create PPTx's. Some of the process involves loading jpg's from another server and including them in the presentation. This works fine in my development environment. When I upload the site to its server, the jpg loading fails.

I am trying to access jpg's on the other server by:

   oFS = New FileStream(sFile, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)

This causes an access violation error when run from the server.

I also boiled the code down to reading the file directly:

   oImg = System.Drawing.Bitmap.FromFile(sFilePath)

This causes a file not found error.

We have narrowed the problem down to the fact that the File Path has a space in it. How does one solve this problem (while still keeping the space, there is a lot of legacy data)? I have tried replacing the space with %20 or +. I have tried using Server.UrlEncode. The error message always comes back with the encoding in place (like no decoding

'Value' should be between 'minimum' and 'maximum'.


I'm attempting to invoke with parameters:


Dim thing2 As New mydelsubPBStep(AddressOf pbStep)

Me.Invoke(thing2, "setMax", dt.Rows.Count)      <---- this is where the error occurs

Maximum memory for string ? . System.MemoryOutOfException Occurs when reading the Content of the fil



I have a C++ code which reads a file [vtk file - its similar to text file only]. and try to store it in string.

here's the code:

String^ ParallelProjectionRenderer::GetVolumeDataAsString(String^ FileName)

    vtkSmartPointer<vtkDataSetWriter> sWriter = vtkSmartPointer<vtkDataSetWriter>::New();

    String^ FileName = "D:\\Users\\...";

    char * sptName = static_cast<char *>(Marshal::StringToHGlobalAnsi(FileName).ToPointer());







    String^ result= File::ReadAllText(FileName);   [it breaks here with system.memoryoutofexception when the file size is huge]

    return result;


this code executes fine when the file size is less than 8mb.

I wanted to know whats the maximum memory allocated to the string.

As a workaround i skipped reading out in C++ code. and i tried to read the file contents in asp.net C# code and stor

insufficient result space to convert uniqueidentifier value to char


Hi guys,

       Look, I've been trying to insert new values while I create a new user with a createuserwizard, but I've been getting this error over and over again:

"insufficient result space to convert uniqueidentifier value to char"

       The code that does it is the following:

  protected void CreateUserWizard1_CreatedUser(object sender, EventArgs e)
TextBox UserNameTextBox = (TextBox)CreateUserWizardStep2.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("UserName");

SqlDataSource DataSource = (SqlDataSource)CreateUserWizardStep2.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("InsertExtraInfo");

MembershipUser User = Membership.GetUser(UserNameTextBox.Text);

object UserGUID = User.ProviderUserKey;

DataSource.InsertParameters.Add("UserId", UserGUID.ToString());


      But when I debug, the error is thrown before reaching the previous code, so I suppose the error is in the SqlDataSource, look:

      <asp:SqlDataSource ID="InsertExtraInfo" runat="server" Co
