Hi,

These are three separate questions.

1. The script
How long does it take to run? What size is the database in question?

PS It is extent fragmentation, not external ...

An extent is a related group of 8 pages.

Hi,

I suggest you look up
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188917.aspx, and dig into the dmv
dm_db_index_physical_stats a little more.

Wait for 1/2 hour but it doesn't return the result...

Is the query correct ? Is there some example on using the sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats ? eg. how to interpret the value and result ?

I will separate the #2 and 3rd question into separate thread. Tks

Hi,

Try on a smaller database first then.

Or if you follow the link I gave, you can specify the indexes of immediate interest.
