Does it matter to increase database auto-grow from 10MB to 250MB? We expereience some bottleneck at database size of 36 GB for a reporting database. But the physical disk has 100 GB free disk space, CPU usage is not high. Occasionally has some COM error Not sure what the problem it is

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should manually grow out the database so that it is as big as it will need to be. SQL 2000 writes 0s to the file when it grows so large autogrow events will take time to complete.

10 MB is definitely to small. This will cause autogrow events to kick off quite often which will impact performance.
