We recently merged with a new company and they have a server that has 265 DBs on it (6.6tb of mdfs). Shortly after we merged the other DBA said it takes 60 minutes to shut down the services which I thought was incredibly high. Last night they stopped and started the services and sure enough it took 60 minutes. I looked at the log this morning and found the following error messages in the sql log file while it was in the process of trying to stop the service.
I know SQL takes a longer time to start back up if you have a lot of VLFs, but it only took 1 minute from the time it started up until the Recovery Complete message appeared in the log. Any idea if 60 mins is normal? Or if not, what can I do to investigate speeding this up. Thanks!
