Hi Guys,

Its me again..!!

I have a fact table, below is some more information on it,

# Records Reserved (KB) Data (KB) Indexes (KB) Unused (KB)
579,126,119 389,356,128 247,399,656 141,672,088 284,384

For simplicity please assume every metric is above 100GB. except the unused KB.

There are 8 indexes on this table, i ran the 'index physical statistic report' and it recommends me to perform reorganize on 4 of the indexes and rebuild on the other 4. How to go about maintaining index ifor such tables?

We have nearly 1000 Business objects (reporting tool) reports reading this table


Thanks for all your help.

As per your requirement and setup you can perform ALTER INDEX on object level for specific index or for all indexes. Also you can perform REBUILD or REORGANIZE.

I'd suggest looking into using Michelle Ufford's scripts for maintaining your indexes. That way you don't have to write something yourself.

I would also consider taking a look at Ola Hallegren's scripts. He has lots of documentation. The "recommended" maintenance is if fragmentatation is over 30%, rebuild, if it is between 5% and 30 %, reorg, and if it is less than 5% (or the table is very small) do nothing. Those numbers may or may not work for your environment.
