Tests the degree of fragmentation in your indexes caused by page splitting using the DBCC SHOWCONTIG command. As DBCC SHOWCONTIG requires the ID of both the index table and index you can simply use this script which accepts the table and index names. DBCC SHOWCONTIG outputs several key measurements, the most important of which is the Scan Density. Scan Density should be as close to 100% as possible. A scan density of below 75% may necessitate a reindexing of all the tables in the database.
