May I run "shrink DB/truncate free space from the end of file" at PROD?

We have a SAP/MSS production system.
The disk is full.
We want to truncate the log file by:
"shrink DB/truncate free space from the end of file"
on the log file.
How risk is it? Can we do it during production is running?
Thanks! Points!

Backup the log file (to save the data and keep a consistent backup) Then shrink the file. Its normal for the log not to shrink down to the size you want. Do not shrink past 1GB.
DO NOT TRUNCATE - you are losing/dropping data and recovery will only be possible to the last on-line, or on-line plus last log/s.
You can avoid a full log file by setting a 9002 trap - this will trigger a backup (like oraarch when you back up based on % full). Else you need to change the frequency of the backups for the logs to ensure the system never fills ups.
You can Also add a second log file on a separate F/S if this occurs regular - which it shouldn't if you have a correct backup strategy.

  • Truncate 4 characters from the end of a field

    How would I go about trimming the last for characters in a field.

    If you are truncating it using the Picture, it should always work. If you are doing it via the !format event, does your data file have a field with the same name as where you put the code?
    I have to admit I dont have a need for truncation so Ive not done any testing besides Test Presentment. The SSN sample came from an actual production form. There isnt anything Im aware of that has to be added to jfpreamble we dont have any form (out of 100s) that has custom jfpreamble coding.
    FYI: We almost exclusively use global field definitions in our data files. If you are using field field definitions that might make a difference. For example, this is a sample from the end of a data file:
    >...
    ^global Authorized_Rep_Name
    G KOCH
    ^global TimeRequested
    11:54:21
    ^global DateRequested

    ^FORM sep-pg9-v1r3-cso.mdf
    ^FORM f-01-115-v1r4-cso.mdf
    If we used field definitions it would look more like:
    >...
    ^form 1111111
    ^field AAAA
    DATA-AAAA
    ^field BBBBB
    DATA-BBBBB
    ^form 222222
    ^field CCCCC
    DATA-CCCCC
    ^field BBBBB
    DATA-BBBBB
    In the first example the data is only defined once, followed by the forms it is to be applied to. In the second example if the data appears on two forms it has to be defined for each form.
    I dont know if this would cause a difference in your truncation problem.

  • Preserve a single space at the end of line using spool command

    Hi,
    Can you please help me to write the result of an sql query into a file with the last column of the row ending with a single space?
    For example:
    COL1DATA|COL2DATA|COL3DATA<space1>
    As mentioned in the example the col3 value in the file should end with a single space. And there should not be any delimiters at the end of the row.
    I tried with set trimspool on/off. But, it didn't work. When I say trimspool on - it is trimming all the trailing spaces.
    When I say trimspool off - it is retaining all the trailing spaces to the size of the line.
    But, I do not wish to modify the file through shell commands once it is written thru spool. I mean I do not wish to append spaces to the end of a line using shell script or any other method.
    I do not wish to use other methods like UTL_FILE also.
    Please help me how to do it using spool command?
    Thank you.
    Ramana

    My requirement is that all the trailing spaces should be truncated except the last one in the row.Why?
    As you have discovered a single column in sqlplus, is always a fixed length regardless of the size of the data, if the length of the data varies the output is padded to the maximum or line size with spaces. The trim and trimpsool commands are there to remove all the spaces from the end of a line if there are any. There are no commands to trim all the spaces except one, or even to trim all the spaces except two, or three even.
    If you want such custom processing you should post process the file in the OS using sed, awk or perl or something designed for such things.

  • WBAdmin BMR backup says "There is not enough free space on the backup storage location to back up the data."

    We're doing nightly BMR backups of a small 2012 R2 Hyper-V host via wbadmin to 2TB USB disks, via
      wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:z: -quiet -noverify -vssFull -include:e:,c: -allCritical
    (where E: contains the sole VM).
    We are using the same backup system on other similar Hyper-V hosts running 2008 R2 and 2012, with no problems. However, with this 2012 R2 host, after a few months of no problems the backups started failing with:
      There is not enough free space on the backup storage location to back up the data.
    This made no sense, and continues to make no sense:
    The 2TB backup disks are only half full (>1TB free), with 600GB of unallocated shadowstorage.
    There should be room for many more backups on these disks. Each currently contains 11 to 13 backups, with the initial full backup having required about 600GB and each subsequent backup only requiring another 20GB to 40GB.
    There is over 40GB free on the C: drive and 300GB free on the E: drive; free space on the host volumes is not an issue.
    Increasing the shadowstorage limit on the backup disks to unbounded doesn't resolve the issue.
    This is not a problem of a RECOVERY partition that's too small, and SystemState backups always complete successfully.
    The first workaround we found was to temporarily reduce (not increase) the shadowstorage allocation on the E: drive (containing the VM) and then increase it back (with the end result of deleting old shadow copies).
    This worked reliably, but looking for a root cause led us to uninstall the Windows Updates installed mid-September (in particular the Aug 2014 and Sep 2014 roll-ups), which preceded the start of this problem. But instead of resolving the problem the uninstalls
    made it worse, in that our workaround stopped working.
    We reinstalled the Windows Updates, and then tried setting backup performance to normal, in case the problem was related to VSS on the host volumes, but the errors continued.
    At this point the only way we've found to work around the error is to delete 1 or 2 of the oldest backups on the destination disk, via
      wbadmin delete backup -backupTarget:z: -deleteOldest
    after which the new backup will succeed.
    But, again, this makes no sense, as the destination disks are only half full, and even if space was an issue wbadmin should delete old backups as required. And this same system is working fine on 2008 R2 and 2012.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    John

    Hi John,
    Please check run the command below to check if the space required to complete the backup causes the snapshot storage space to become less than 1/8 of the target size.
    vssadmin list shadows /for=x: will list the shadow copies on x: and creation time.
    WSB will not shrink the diff area to less than 1/8 of Target volume size as we do not want to lose all past backups just to accommodate this one.

  • Tmpfs free space versus the "free" command

    I've always thought this possible, so today I tried it:
    I have 2 gigs of physical RAM, and no swap partitions, so my memory limit is a hard 2 gigs.
    I made 2 1-gig tmpfs mounts; nothing complained.
    I filled them up one at a time, and kept checking both free memory (with free) and free space on the tmpfs mounts -- as I started to get near the limit of my system's RAM, free still showed plenty of RAM free in the +/- row.
    Neither free nor df gave me any indication that the system was dangerously low on memory. (I assume from a bit of Googling  that "free" considers the size of tmpfs's to be part of the "cached" column, as nothing else was big enough to contain them.)
    Anyhow, I added a few more files to the tmpfs and the system locked up for a while... After about 3 minutes of hard drive thrashing (which was a bit distressing, but since my files look OK I guess it was desperately running sync again and again to try to free RAM for the tmpfs), a couple programs died and everything went back to normal.
    So, in an effort to have that not happen again (since I use tmpfs heavily; it's a nice way to screw around with big files without waiting on hard drives), I wrote this little shell script:
    #!/bin/bash
    #prints worst-case free memory, from /proc/meminfo
    total=`grep MemTotal /proc/meminfo | gawk '{print $2}'`
    used=`grep Committed_AS /proc/meminfo | gawk '{print $2}'`
    echo "Free RAM in the worst case: " $(($total - $used)) "kB"
    and put this in my .bashrc:
    alias free='free; wcfree'
    alias df='df; wcfree'
    ~Felix.
    PS: If it's not possible to make stuff crash with only a single tmpfs, please let me know -- that would be good knowledge, and make me feel silly for writing this :P

    The advice I got was to shrink the database and reexpand it. And reindex all tables because of defragmentation.
    I don't know if it works, and I would be hesitant to try it, because I believe there is an issue with DBCC SHRINKFILE being awfully slow when there is LOB data.
    I like to believe that your odds would be better if you used varbinary(MAX), and given how easier varbinary(MAX) is to work with your life would be happier two. But I don't know how that would work with your merge-replication scheme. And if you use READ/WRITE/UPDATETEXT
    you need to change that code.
    You say you cannot create a new table and copy data over because of merge replication. Would it be possible to create a new column, copy data over, drop the old column and rename? I have no experience with merge replication myself, so I don't know of
    the repercussions. If you do this, you need to run DBCC CLEANTABLE to get rid of the space.
    For that matter you could try DBCC CLEANTABLE in the state you have now. Not that it should help from you have told me, but you never know...

  • How do you free space on the startup disk

    how do you free space on the startup disk

    If your disk is 80% full that is normal.  Time Machine uses up to 80% of the disk space for local snapshots.  To get rid of these snapshots simply plug in your Time Machine backup drive and run a backup. 
    If you have less than 20% disk space then it is time to roll up your sleeves and search for what you can delete and what you can offload to another disk.
    If you have less than 10 GB you definitely need to delete or offload some files.  You may want to maintain at least 20 GB of free space so when your disk starts filling again it will have some room before it hits that 10 GB mark again.  More headroom is better.  If you let the space fall much below 9 GB you might not be able to boot your machine.
    Initial easy steps to gain disk space:
    - Delete all files in the Downloads folder.
    - Empty the trash.
    - Start iPhoto, empty its trash and restart the computer.
    Deleting files:
    Run a Time Machine (or other) backup since you are about to delete and move files and you may need to recover from any inadvertent mistakes or decisions.  You will need one external hard drive for your Time Machine (or other) backup and a second one onto which you will offload some files.
    Then use the free application OmniDiskSweeper http://www.omnigroup.com/more to explore your volume in descending order by size so you can attack the problem from the top down, deleting the largest unwanted files first.  Delete with caution and do not delete any system files.  Remember to empty the trash after trashing the files.
    Moving files:
    Consider moving some of the no-often-used large files or directories to an external disk.  Use ODS again to find them. 
    As noted above this will be at least your second hard drive.  Your first one(s) is/are for your Time Machine (or other) backup(s).  Do not offload files onto a Time Machine disk.
    Format the second drive as Mac OS Extended (journaled).  Using OWS to find large files/folders and copy them from the system drive to the external hard drive and delete them from your internal drive.
    Then  > System Preferences > Time Machine > Options… > Remove the offload HD name from the exclusions list.
    Now both your system disk and your external offload disk will be backed up onto your Time Machine disk.

  • Several encrypted .dmg files show much more free space that the total size of the file.

    I have several encrypted .dmg files on my macbook air running OS X 10.10.1  I have had them for years with no problems. Now suddenly, in the finder, at the bottom of the finder window where it shows the number of items and free space for a disk, it shows more free space than the full size of the .dmg file. Typically it will show about 200MB for a 100 MB file. Obviously, this is a bug, but I can find no information or discussions about it anywhere.
    Does anyone have the same problem? Any ideas how to fix it?

    Thanks for the ideas. Unfortunately, it didn't work.
    I rebuilt the spotlight index as suggested.
    I tried it twice, rebooting the computer a couple of time along the way.
    Below you can see the actual file as it occurs in the finder in its unopened form.
    Now, below here is what the finder reports at the bottom of the finder window when the file is opened and added as a virtual disk.
    Note that the total file size is 102.5 Mb
    Yet the finder says it has 234.5 Mb free!
    The actual size of the files on the disk add up to about 60 Mb
    This occurs with several similar dmg files.
    Any other ideas or experiences would be appreciated.

  • The merge process could not allocate memory for an operation; your system may be running low on virtual memory. Restart the Merge Agent.

    I encountered this problem on our SQL2012 and I have tried different scenarios (see below) to no avail. I have decided to give up and check if someone here has encountered this and resolved it. 
    One thing I know, it's not a memory issue. Both servers we're using has lots of memory to spare and we monitor the memory as the replication goes through it's steps. 
    I hope someone can help me on this. Thanks!
    The Error:
    The merge process could not allocate memory for an operation; your system may be running low on virtual memory. Restart the Merge Agent.
    Our Scenario
    We're using SQL Server 2012 SP1. All subscriptions are pull based.
    We're using direct Merge Replication (not FTP or web sync)
    We already have 10 active replications with larger databases. Only 1 has this issue.
    Database size is less than 5 GB
    Rebuilding the publisher is not an option.
    What have I tried?
    There is no memory problem --- we have lots to spare
    I have tried re-initialization of the database. Same problem.
    I tried deleting the database and reinitializing it. Same problem
    New snapshot. Same problem.
    I tried changing the subscriber server but still same issue. 
    MCP, MCSD, MCDBA (ANXA)

    Here is the result for the sp_configure on our subscriber. We're doing a pull on the server with the issue.

    In addition, I made a comparison between the working servers and the one with the issue -- there seems to be a difference in the service pack. Publisher has none but the subscriber is operating on SP1. But still strange as only 1 database is affected.

    Mac OS X 10.7.5
    iPhoto 11 9.4.2
    importing photos into iphoto, shows "Photo cannot import your photos because there is not enough free space on the volume containing your iPhoto library."

    currently only has 2,500 photos in iPhoto
    Importing about 500 photos, but cant do it due to the message showed above.
    Who knows how to fix it?

    How much free space do you have on your hard drive?  Try the following:
    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your
         User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
    2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
    User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).
    or with Mt. Lion from the User/Library/Containers/com.apple.iPhoto/

    NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding down the Option key when launching iPhoto.  You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.

  • Adobe Premiere Pro cs5 has eaten a free space on the hard drive!

    The initial video file was about 1Gb, I needed to cut it and add audio to it. I tried exporting with DV PAL encoding, there was about 15Gb of free space on the hard drive. It took a long time to export and somewhere at 90% it showed the message that free space on the drive was out. I closed Premiere, the target directory where encoded AVI should be exported was empty. The search by name doesn't find anything. Disk cleanup freed only 5Gb. Could you please tell me what the directory where Premiere store a temporary files while Encoding Sequence.
    THANKS IN ADVANCE!

    Hello, I have a very similar problem.  A few days ago I was alarmed to see all of a sudden my Main Hard Drive full. 
    The editing station that I'm working on is a new computer and all media and scratch disks are assigned to a project folder on another hard drive.
    I started digging through the main drive to find what is loading the drive and realized that Media Cache files folder has over 30 Gigabytes of data in it!
    In the Adobe Premiere Media Settings there is an option to redirect the Cache files or Save them next to originals check box (Which I selected).
    This brings me to very important questions:
    What is the correct process of setting up Adobe Premiere project so there are no temporary, cache, pre-renders.... clog up the main drive or get scattered elsewhere? It would be very preferable to keep everything in one project folder.
    Should I redirect or keep the files with originals?
    Besides Scratch disks and Media Cache files are there any other files generated by the program?   If there is, where can I find them?
    Once I complete my project and want to completely delete it from my computer, what is the correct way of removing everything so nothing is left over from the deleted project?
    Answers to these questions are very important for me and I would be very grateful to get answers to them :-)

  • How do you create additional free space on the volume containing the iPhoto library?  I have plenty of HD space.

    How do you create additional free space on the volume containing the iPhoto library?  When attempting to import images from a CD I get an "Insufficient Disk Space" message albeit there is plaenty of additional space on the hard drive.

    How much free space do you have on your hard drive?  Try the following:
    1 - delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your
         User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.
    2 - delete iPhoto's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your
    User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).
    or with Mt. Lion from the User/Library/Containers/com.apple.iPhoto/
    Data/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto folder
    3 - launch iPhoto and try again.
