Hello,

I have executed a query that use dmv for finding missing indexes.
SELECT  TOP 25
        [Total Cost]  = ROUND(avg_total_user_cost * avg_user_impact * (user_seeks + user_scans),0)
        , avg_user_impact
        , TableName = statement
        , [EqualityUsage] = equality_columns
        , [InequalityUsage] = inequality_columns
        , [Include Columns] = included_columns
FROM        sys.dm_db_missing_index_groups g
INNER JOIN    sys.dm_db_missing_index_group_stats s
       ON s.group_handle = g.index_group_handle
INNER JOIN    sys.dm_db_missing_index_details d
       ON d.index_handle = g.index_handle
ORDER BY [Total Cost] DESC;

Does I have to create the index with the columns in the equality_usage?

Thanks

Although there is nothing wrong with your query I suggest use the free Microsoft "SQL Server 2005 Performance Dashboard Reports" where you have a performance_dashboard_main report that has exactly what you need "Missing Indexes" at the database level. I use it and trust it more than just queries against SQL sys objects and it is built by Microsoft for SQL.

Just check out the attachment to see what info you get out of it plus you can export it to Excel(like I did), sort by any column in the heading, get the SQL stmnt to create the index - is all in there and worth to use it.
