There's more to indexing than the basic "create index" statement! We'll go under the covers and look at the different types of indexes available in both Enterprise and Standard Editions, including b-tree, bitmap, reverse-key, functional, composite and partitioned; describe how to select the most appropriate type of index for a particular situation; explore storage parameters and lesser-known configuration options available to fine-tune performance; discuss methods for gathering statistics, including whether to capture histograms or not; and cover techniques for managing and maintaining a healthy library of indexes. Scripts included!
1. How to choose the appropriate type of index for a particular implementation.
2. An understanding of indexing options and storage configurations available to improve index (and database) performance.
3. Techniques for managing and maintaining the health of indexes.
