Look for an NT box that had a session canceled due to a timeout value being
reached...

04/23/2004 23:37:24  ANR0481W Session 834 for node XXXXXXXX (WinNT)
                      terminated - client did not respond within 7800
seconds.
                      (SESSION: 834)

That sucker pinned my log and triggered about 200+ full data base backups
because each full db backup didn't free enough log space!

ARGH !

Over the weekend, my Log got pinned and it filled up, severely
interrupting a barbecue. (Murphy's Law in action: My pager went off
WHILE the steaks were on the grill.)

Now that it is all mopped up (and the easily available evidence is
thereby destroyed) how can I figure out how this happened? (I know, I
should have entered a SHOW LOGPIN command, but I didn't. It didn't occur
to me until a search of adsm.org long afterward.) Are there any telltale
signs I can search for in the Activity Log? Or in the Accounting file?
