Reducing SQL Server logspace usage —

Further to my post on using Elasticsearch and Kibana to visualize SQL Server logspace usage, it turned out that this data allowed me to suggest an alternative scheduling time for a large update job (to span a log backup point).

As a result of this we should be able to reduce peak logspace usage from 25% of allocated space to around 20% – thus allowing the log file to be reduced in size dramatically.
