Hi

I am getting messages from BMC (monitoring tool) saying that a particular database log file is 99% full.
I checked the database properties and found that the allocated space for the log file is around 250mb with automatic grow file by 10% and unrestricted file growth.
Should i be concerned with this BMC message as long as there is enough space in the disk and the backup jobs are running fine.

Thanks in advance
Sreenath

It is also pretty important to schedule transaction log backups.
