Error 7412



Message text

Space available in the log segment has fallen critically low in database '%.*s'.  All future modifications to this database will be %S_MSG until the log is successfully dumped and space becomes available.


This message notifies users that the last-chance threshold has been reached. All transactions requiring access to the transaction log will either be suspended or aborted until the appropriate action is taken to clear the transaction log.


  1. Ensure that the action defined by the last-chance threshold procedure was able to execute successfully. If the procedure failed for any reason, manually run dump transaction to create free space in the transaction log.

  2. Look for errors in the Adaptive Server error log to determine why the procedure failed.

  3. Restart any transactions that have been aborted.

Additional information

Refer to the chapter “Managing Free Space with Thresholds” in the System Administration Guide: Volume 2 for information about last-chance thresholds.
