Hi, I have a 28 GB SQL 2000 Database that is in need of a re index. I am currently running DBCC DBREINDEX on all tables within My_DB and was wondering if there was a way to tell when the process would complete.
Also, should I run DBCC INDEXDEFRAG after DBCC DBREINDEX completes?
No real way to tell when it will complete. Even estimates based on previous rebuilds can be way off.
To clarify what Gail said, DBCC DBREINDEX will do everything including defragging and rebuilding statistics so there's no need to do a DBCC INDEXDEFRAG after DBCC DBREINDEX.
is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for R
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code: Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Helpful Links:
