Finding Fragmentation Rates of Indexes in SQL Server

Hello to everyone,

In this article, I will try to give information about finding Fragmentation rates of Indexes in SQL Server.

In SQL Server, in some cases, you may want to find the Fragmentation rates of Indexes.

You can easily do this using the code below.

SELECT ps.object_id, AS IndexName,
       OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME(ps.object_id) AS ObjectSchemaName,
       OBJECT_NAME(ps.object_id) AS ObjectName,
FROM sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats(DB_ID(), NULL, NULL, NULL, 'LIMITED') ps
    INNER JOIN sys.indexes i
        ON i.object_id = ps.object_id
           AND i.index_id = ps.index_id
WHERE avg_fragmentation_in_percent > 5
      AND ps.index_id > 0
ORDER BY avg_fragmentation_in_percent DESC;

When you run the above code, you will see a result similar to the one below.
