Discover Why IDERA Has the Best SQL Server Index Defragmentation Tool

Fragmentation can be a silent killer of SQL Server performance. Frequent database inserts, deletes, and merges create index growth problems that remain hidden until performance suffers. IDERA SQL Defrag Manager is your best defense against this killer as it works to identify and eliminate fragmentation problems proactively across all your SQL Servers.

Native Microsoft SQL Server functions like “sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats” provide a lot of useful fragmentation data but using them it is a very manual and reactive solution. If you are just managing a few databases and problem indices this can be enough. Anything larger or more active though requires an automated and proactive strategy to fragmentation maintenance that native tools cannot provide.

A proactive strategy is much more than simply creating automatic defrag schedules as other tools do. IDERA lets you manage fragmentation on your schedule and helps lessen the impact of defrag operations on your environment. Before rebuilding an index, SQL Defrag Manager can check system resources and hold an operation until resources come free or place it on a to-do list to look at later. Defrag operations can be limited to top offenders or have hard stop times so they will run within your maintenance window. IDERA provides the level of flexibility and control required to effectively manage SQL Server index fragmentation.
