A Script A Day - Day 17 - Possible Poor Indexes

Today’s script is one I’ve taken from a job I use to collect possible poor indexes.  I’ve tweeked it slightly so you can choose the database to run it against. 

It goes without saying that you should never just remove an index without some considerable investigation doesn't it???!!!

      sys.dm_db_index_usage_stats AS S WITH (NOLOCK)
      INNER JOIN sys.indexes AS I WITH (NOLOCK) ON S.[object_id] = I.[object_id] AND I.index_id = s.index_id
WHERE
      OBJECTPROPERTY(s.[object_id],'IsUserTable') = 1
      AND s.database_id = DB_ID()
      AND user_updates > (user_seeks + user_scans + user_lookups)
      AND I.index_id > 1
ORDER BY
      [Difference] DESC,
      [Total Writes] DESC,
      [Total Reads] ASC
OPTION (RECOMPILE);
GO

Enjoy!
