Purpose: Gets an overview of the current VLF status in all databases of a given instance, and if the number of VLFs are above a pre-determined threshold, also makes a suggestion of how many and how large the VLFs should be for that particular database.
In the output, you will find the following information:
- The database name;
- The transaction log current size and the size it will be after applying suggested changes. Both in MB;
- The current number of VLFs and the number of VLFs that will remain after applying suggested changes;
- The amount of growth iterations necessary to get to the suggested size;
- The transaction log initial size and the autogrow size that should be set;
In addition, a script is generated with the typical example steps needed to deal with the issue, depending on whether the database is in Simple recovery model or not.
