I'm looking at database monitoring and seeing that nearly all of our SQL databases report a high degree of fragmentation in their indexes. 99.8-99.9% fragmented is not uncommon. Can this play significantly into poorer performance for database interactions from .NET web servers which integrate with SQL?
