Hi,

I´m using a sql server 2008 r2 with more than 2500 tables.

How  can I check all of them and obtain how many of them have more than xx% degree fragmented?

For example tables with more than 75%  index fragmentation degree

Any idea?

regards

The following will show you:

SELECT ps.database_id, ps.OBJECT_ID,
ps.index_id, b.name,
ps.avg_fragmentation_in_percent, b.name, ps.page_count
FROM sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats (DB_ID(), NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL) AS ps
INNER JOIN sys.indexes AS b ON ps.OBJECT_ID = b.OBJECT_ID
AND ps.index_id = b.index_id
WHERE ps.database_id = DB_ID()
and ps.avg_fragmentation_in_percent > xx
and ps.page_count > yy
ORDER BY b.name
GO

Open in new window


Replace xx with your percentage break limit and yy with the minimum number of pages on the index.

Page Count is the number of pages in the index.

Usually, it's not worth trying to defrag indexes with only a couple of hundred pages in them, because there is just too few pages in order for it to make a difference.

Play with the parameter in your system and see what you get.  Start with 100 or 200 and see what it shows you.

I'd bet that your SQL Server compatibility mode is set to 80 and it's complaining about the DB_ID() function.

You can get around this by doing a select DB_ID(), find out the value that returns the replace DB_ID() with that integer value on lines 4 and 7.
