Error: The transaction log for the database 'tempdb' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases - when processing a smart field

When running a Constituent Revenue Application smart field, users may see that the database server's tempdb is using in excess of 30GB drive space.

At times the drive on the server runs out of space, causing an error. SQL Services have to restarted to gain the disk space back.


Error when drive space is used up:
The transaction log for the database 'tempdb' is full. To find out why space in the log cannot be reused, see the log_reuse_wait_desc column in sys.databases.
