I have default install on Sharepoint 2010 that uses a Sql 2008 DB on a seperate server. I noticed that all of my Sharepoint DB's are set to false for the " AutoUpdate Stats" in SQL.
here are my questions.
1) How does an update stats job differ from a index defrag?
2) Why are all of the sharepoint DB update stats disabled by default?
3) SHould I enable this? What will I gain by doing so?
