I am evaluating the Free edition of Veeam monitor and have it collecting data to a separate SQL 2005 server.
What we are seeing is a huge amount of Transaction Log traffic and it is consuming vast amounts of disk space.
The database is currently at 637MB but there are two LDF log files VeeamMonitor_log and VeeamMonitor_log2, we just ran a backup/truncate logs cause the transaction logs were at 20GB! Even now the _log file is 873MB and the _log2 file is 116MB (I believe these are the initial sizes after our truncate).
Is this normal for the database? I guess we are not sure why the log files would be growing at a large rate to where they would consume 20GB of space in about 4 weeks of running. Our setup has 4 vCenter Servers (50 guests) and another 4 ESXi servers (10 Guests).
Any thoughts on this?
