Rebuild indexes based on fragmentation – sp_RebuildIndex

In my previous post here, I’ve discussed how we can detect fragmentation in SQL Server databases indexes using dynamic management view function sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats. In this post, I’m sharing my stored procedure which I’ve created a while ago to rebuild fragmented indexes based on the fragmentation level. This stored procedure is based on sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats and resides in master database. This procedure automatically rebuilds indexes if the fragmentation level is above 30% and reorganises indexes if fragmentation is less than 30%.

Code for the procedure is as follow:

USE [master]
GO

SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_RebuildIndex] @FragmentationLevel [int] = 30
	,@SortInTempDB [varchar] (8) = 'OFF'
	,@Online [varchar] (8) = 'OFF'
	,@LOBCompaction [varchar] (8) = 'ON'
	,@ScanMode [varchar] (16) = 'DETAILED'
	,@MinRowsInTable [int] = 1000
	--Stored Procedure: [dbo].[sp_RebuildIndex]
	--Author: Basit A. Farooq
	--Version #: v1.0.0
	--********************
	-- Purpose/Comments
	--********************
	--Stored procedure to rebuild the indexes of database.
	--Indexes will be rebuild based on fragmentation criteria and scan mode.
AS
BEGIN
	SET NOCOUNT ON;

	--***********
	--Parameters
	--***********
	--@FragmentationLevel [int]
	--Specifies index fragementation level search criteria.
	--@SortInTempDB [varchar](8)
	--Specifies whether to store the sort results in tempdb. The default is OFF.
	--@LOBCompaction [varchar](8)
	--Specifies that all pages that contain large object (LOB) data are compacted.
	--The default is ON
	--@Online [varchar](8)
	--Specifies whether underlying tables and associated indexes are available for queries and
	--data modification during the index operation. The default is OFF.
	--@ScanMode [varchar](16) Is the name of the mode.
	--@ScanMode specifies the scan level that is used to obtain statistics.
	--Valid inputs are DEFAULT, NULL, LIMITED, SAMPLED or DETAILED.
	--The default (NULL) is LIMITED.
	--The DETAILED mode scans all pages and returns all statistics.
	--The SAMPLED mode returns statistics based on a 1 percent sample of all the pages
	--in the index or heap. The modes are progressivelyslower from LIMITED to DETAILED,
	--because more work is performed in each mode.
	--@MinRowsInTable [int]
	--Specifies minimum rows in table for search criteria.

Mark this procedure as system object by executing the following command so that this procedure can be accessed from any database:

USE [master]
GO

EXEC sys.sp_MS_marksystemobject sp_RebuildIndex;
GO

In the next version, I will add a logging feature so that you can see what indexes were defragmented, see how bad the fragmentation was, and perhaps do some trending on the data.

Let me know, if you find a bug or want me add any other feature.

  1. I get the following error when I run th Stored Procedure:

    1018 15 1 sRebuildIndex 1 Incorrect syntax near ‘index’. If this is intended as a part of a table hint, A WITH keyword and parenthesis are now required. See SQL Server Books Online for proper syntax.

  2. it can be very usefull for me but i have an error message says that can’t cast an partition number cause of the non partitioned index

    Can someone help me plz?
