I've begun a consulting assignment and find an extremely slow database with a confused political environment where it's not clear who's responsible for what?  As an example, getting the count from a table (admittedly large with about 6 million rows) took more than 4 minutes.

I'd like to get some feel for how this database is being maintained on my own and I'm wondering if there is anything available in the sys tables that would indicate when UpdateStatistics was last run on a given table.  Also, is there any way to determine when an index was created?
