StruxureWare Building Operation site with Reports installed


If a site is using SQL Express 2008 then it is the 10 GB limit. If using the full version(s), it is unlimited. If the database or the partition where the Reports Server resides is full, here are some steps to reduce the SQL tables volume and offer a short term solution.


  1. Before continuing, make sure there is a good backup of the database.
  2. Using SQL Server Management Studio, highlight the StruxureWareReportsDB and select New Query
  3. Use the following Script in that Query:
    SELECT t.NAME AS TableName, s.Name AS SchemaName, p.rows AS RowCounts, 
    SUM(a.total_pages) * 8 AS TotalSpaceKB, SUM(a.used_pages) * 8 AS UsedSpaceKB,
    (SUM(a.total_pages) - SUM(a.used_pages)) * 8 AS UnusedSpaceKB
    FROM sys.tables t INNER JOIN sys.indexes i ON t.OBJECT_ID = i.object_id
    INNER JOIN sys.partitions p ON i.object_id = p.OBJECT_ID AND i.index_id = p.index_id
    INNER JOIN sys.allocation_units a ON p.partition_id = a.container_id
    LEFT OUTER JOIN sys.schemas s ON t.schema_id = s.schema_id
    WHERE t.NAME NOT LIKE 'dt%' AND t.is_ms_shipped = 0 AND i.OBJECT_ID > 255
    GROUP BY t.Name, s.Name, p.Rows ORDER BY t.Name
  4. Select Execute to run that Query as shown in the screen capture below:
  5. The Results show each of the tables and the size of those tables as shown in the screen capture below:
  6. Purely for example purposes, a script to reduce the number of Events would be
    delete from tbEvents where DATEDIFF(day, datetimestamp, getdate()) > 180
  7. To gain back the space after deleting rows, right click on StruxureWareReportsdb > Tasks > Shrink > Database
