Hello,

Instead of using the DBCC command to do an internal defrag or reindex of the database. Does anyone know of any specific or good software that does this and is easy to manage? I am curerntly running Diskeeper to do an external defragmentation, now I am looking for something to allow me to do an internal reindex of the databses.

Thanks
Dr Ego

DBCC REINDEX is the only proper (and recommended) way to re-index a table or view within SQL

What do you hope to achieve by running a re-index ... ?

DBCC REINDEXdoes exatly what you say that you are looking for

I was looking for a way to run the reindex faster or a software that allows for scheduling or other beneficial tools.

Also, to manage 5 or more database servers without doing it manually..

The reindex can only be run "faster" using the "Keep-online" option (I think this is only Enterprise edition that allows it"

As for scheduling, there are various ways of doing this
  1- SQL Agent
  2 - Database meintenance plans (which internally use SQL Integration services)
  3 - a "SQLCMD" script.

Whichever method you choose, it is almost certainly going to use the database's own DBCC DBREINDEX command.

If you're using SQL 2005 (as opposed to SQL 2000), take a look at the following command ("ALTER INDEX)

This is the successor to  DBCC DBREINDEX and DBCC INDEXDEFRAG.
