PLSSUG Katowice Extra !!!! Paul S. Randal for PLSSUG

Jan 29, 2015 · Katowice, Poland

One of the most well-known personalities in the SQL Server world, Paul S. Randal, is going to be our guest during all-PLSSUG online meeting. This event will happen on January 29th, 2015.

Subject: Index Fragmentation: Internals, Analysis, and Solutions

Abstract: As soon as you have more than one index on a table, you're going to start seeing fragmentation. Many people know that this fragmentation is bad, but why is it bad? And what is the best way to get rid of it? Come find out from the person who wrote the tools for detecting and removing index fragmentation. In this session, you'll learn how fragmentation occurs and why the process that leads to it can often be as damaging to performance as the fragmentation itself. You'll also learn how to test for fragmentation, the different methods of removing it, and everything you need to consider when putting together an appropriate fragmentation-management strategy.
