I have large database (MyDatabase).

The size of the tempdb database on the sql instance is 1GB.

Yesterday, he went at once to 6GB

that happened?

What should I do?

look for some uncommited long transactions.
If there are large batch operations try breaking them into small batches

Based on your level of restore needed, choose a different recovery model (simple) if possible.
