Check File Size and Growth for SQL Server 2000

This rule checks an instance of SQL Server 2000 for data files that are 1 gigabyte or larger, and are set to autogrow by a percentage instead of a fixed size. Growing a data file by a percentage can cause performance problems with SQL Server because of progressively larger growth increments.

Best Practices Recommendations

For SQL Server 2000, set the FILEGROWTH value to a fixed size to help prevent performance problems because of incrementally increasing file growth.
