Index Defragmentation

By MUTHUKKUMARAN KALIYAMOORTHY,

Index Defragmentation is one of the most important DBA tasks. This will significantly improve query performance. When you perform any DML operation (INSERT, UPDATE, or DELETE statements) table fragmentation can occur. If you use predefined maintenance plan it will take much server resource and time. Here is a custom stored procedure.

If you want to determine the level of fragmentation, you can use the SYS.DM_DB_INDEX_PHYSICAL_STATS statement. The SYS.DM_DB_INDEX_PHYSICAL_STATS DMV displays fragmentation information for the data and indexes of the specified object.

Here I use 4 conditions :

1. Fragmentation >=30 AND PAGES>1000 then rebuild
2. Fragmentation between 15 to 29 AND PAGES>1000 then reorganize & update statistics
3. If the page level locking is disabled then rebuild
4. If the above conditions are false and statistics are outdated more than 10 days then update the statistics

Before you run the procedure create the tables provided for history propose
