Prioritize Missing Index Recommendations 2 (2005)

By Michael Smith,

This is an enhanced version of my previous script: Prioritize Missing Index Recommendations (2005).

To aid in evaluation of whether the recommended index is reasonable, I have added :

1. counts for key columns and the total columns of the recommended index 

2. the length/bytes for both key and all columns  Note this is 'per row', not what the space used would be once actually created

I have also removed the threshold/min row construct, so all recommended indexes will appear.
