Hi

I have a large table which there is just select and insert on it.It has a field named 'TranType'(int) and for some of the types we just have insert and no select at all.

I want to use partitioning to separate this data into another file.but there is not any particular range for values . For example the types with no select are:1004,1006,1007,1009,1010,2000


How can i use the CREATE PARTITION FUNCTION in this case?

CREATE PARTITION FUNCTION PartitionDB_PartitionRange (INT)
AS RANGE LEFT FOR
VALUES (????);



Another basic question about partitioning:
I have a table like this


CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Trans]
(
[Num] [int] NOT NULL,
[Date] [datetime] NOT NULL,
[ID] [bigint] NULL,
[Kind] [int] NULL,
[Success] [bit] NULL,
[CNum] [nvarchar](20) NULL,
[Data] [nvarchar](4000) NULL,
[Counter] [int] NOT NULL,
[IP] [nvarchar](25) NULL,
[Result] [int] NULL,
CONSTRAINT [PK_Trans] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED([Num] ASC, [Date] ASC)
WITH (
PAD_INDEX = OFF,
STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE = OFF,
IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF,
ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS = ON,
ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS = ON
) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]


so it has a Clustered Index For PRIMARY KEY and 6 NonClustered Indexes.

for partitioning on the feild "kind" should i drop all the FK and PRIMARY KEY,and create a new CLUSTERED Index on kind feild?

there isnt any way that i dont have to drop all this indexes and FK s?

First question. Why are you partitioning? What's the purpose, what's the goal?

There is a sharply increase in the size of transactions that is inserted in that table,and if i can do partitioning the remaining range of kind field will be half,and the performance of select statements on the table will be increased,also i think the page split would be decreased in the partition that i want to select from it.

If you are partitioning with the idea that queries are automatically faster on partitioned tables, don't waste your time.

NO , partitoning is not related with page spliting and
for partitiioning see this http://www.brentozar.com/archive/2012/03/how-decide-if-should-use-table-partitioning/
