ANNOUNCEMENT!!!  SQL Saturday #222 Sacramento ALL-DAY Precon with Kalen Delaney - Performance Tuning with Indexes: Internals and Best Practices

Sacramento SQL Server User Group will be hosting an all-day Precon on Friday July 26th with Kalen Delaney talking about Performance Tuning with Indexes!

Indexes allow SQL Server to access your data in the most efficient manner. Understanding exactly how your indexes are structured and stored internally can give you a deeper understanding of what indexes will be useful for your queries.  Knowing how indexes are useful can allow us to generalize some best practice recommendations.  In this seminar we’ll look at the following topics:

Basic Index Structures
Clustered vs nonclustered
Unique vs non-unique
Included columns
Tools for Exploring Index Structures
Index maintenance
Page splits
Fragmentation and Defragmentation
Index Design Considerations
