A few short notes this morning regarding the blogs and other stuff.

We had a big outage over the weekend, which rather embarrassingly manifested itself as ‘out-of-disk-space’ errors for anyone trying to get to any of our blogs. As you all know we preach about pro-active monitoring of data and log file space, so this didn’t look good IMHO. All I can say is that it was the website and blogs log drive on the hosting company’s server that filled up, not something we have control over. Needless to say, their process has been fixed so that it shouldn’t happen again. Sorry about that (and thanks to all of you who dropped me mail to let me know).

Now Kimberly and I have recovered from six straight weeks of teaching, we’ll be making progress on other projects. I’ve had a bunch of people ask where the annotated slide decks are (see this post). We’ve been a little busy with our teaching projects the last few months (see the previous post) but we’re working on getting the first deck ready – it’ll be Disaster Recovery: From Planning to Practice to Post-Mortem.

  1. That disk space prompt me to think, is there any way we can find disk size from SQLServer? I know xp_fixeddrives give the free space but I am interested in finding the disk size from SQLServer.
