There’s a lot to smile on a cool Monday like this. One, it’s 27C outside here in Singapore, a lot less humid than most days. Two, a smiling barista in Starbucks served my coffee this morning, she must’ve a great morning start too and three, free ebooks from the Red-Gate community, http://www.red-gate.com/community/books/index!
I started to download this one, http://www.red-gate.com/community/books/sql-server-transaction-log-management then managed to move the PDF to my ipad so I can bring it and actually read it whenever there is a chance. I want do a little digging more on transaction log backups and so i picked this one. As a DBA, it is important to really manage your transaction log because in the most unexpected times, it will really creep up on on you and give you headaches. There is a need to understand how SQL Server uses the transaction log and why sometimes it just grows up so fast and so large.
So I suggest this as a good read on SQL Server. And it’s FREE.
