SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft SQL Server 2008, when you perform operations on some temporary tables, you find that the following error message is logged in the SQL Server 2008 Errorlog file:
Date Time SPID Time out occurred while waiting for buffer latch -- type 4, bp 000000071EFA3900, page 5:18619, stat 0x2c0000b, database id: 2, allocation unit id: 427416679612416/145941702901760, task 0x0000000005809048 : 0, waittime 1800, flags 0x100000001a, owning task 0x0000000005809048. Continuing to wait.
Additionally, the size of the log file of the tempdb database grows aggressively. If you try to kill the session ID, the log file of the tempdb database is filled immediately. You have to restart the server to resolve this issue.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because an unresolved latch wait occurs, and SQL Server continues to write log files.
