Good afternoon,

I tried the following command to find out the free space in the log segment

1.dbcc checktable(syslogs)

2.sp_helpsegment logsegment data_pages(db_id('DB_NAME'),8,0)

4.sp_spaceused syslogs

solution 1/2/4 give about the same result but solution 1 might be long to compute when the log segment is full.

How do you efficiently compute free space in log segment?

Thanks all
