I am creating a dynamic database from C# code, and would like the database to have a fixed size (for example 5 GB). While creating the DB through code, I need to specify MDF and LDF max file sizes. What should be the ideal values? 2.5GB each or is their some other ratio?
I have to make sure that the total DB size does not go more than 5GB, so should I only worry about the MDF size (keeping it fixed at 5GB) and leave the LDF size to grow unlimited (I cant do that but if it hurts performance then I have to think about it)?
