What significance do Filegroups have on Indexes


I'm a newbie in this SQL Server development. I have a database with 7
tables that are linked to each other and have created clustered index
for the primary keys and non-clustered index for the secondary keys.

All my indexes are on the same filegroup, what is the effect of this
becuase the application that I'm using runs very slow during

PS: My tables have a grown rate of about 10 000 records a day.

It is probably not the fact they are in filegroups that makes your
application slow. In general filegroups will only improve performance the
files are located on different disks/controllers. They can also help

You should look at if the indexes need reindexing/defragmenting and if your
statistics are upto date. Regular maintenance of your database should
include updating these.

Check out the sections "Administer ing SQL Server"
and "Creating and Maintaining Databases"
in Books online.

Hi, I want to find out in my SP the filegroup associated with a particular table? I was not able to establish the relationship between sysobjects and sysfilegroups table. Is there any other way to find filegroup of a table in T_SQL? Also lets say there are 3 dtatfiles in a filegroup 'FG1' and table 'xyz' is created on filegroup 'FG1' - Is there any way to find out the datafile's names on which table xyz's data is scattered?

I'm trying to tweak our DB as much as I can. We have the full application database sitting on a RAID 10. Logs, tempdb, etc.. are on separate arrays. I read some articles about making separate filegroups. Of course, they all say to move them to different arrays, which because of budget is not possible right now. I also read articles that say to put large tables in a filegroup then add another data file to the group. This allows SQL...

I ran into a table that is used a lot. Well less than 100,000 records. Maybe not a lot of records but i believe this table is used often. The table has 26 fields, 9 indexes but no Primary Key at all! There are no table relationships defined in this database, no Natural keys, only Surrogate keys in the database. 1- Maybe an odd question but is it normal to have 1/3 of the table's fields as indexes? Is this a valid question or it really

This is the first time that I remember ever having too many indexes on a table, but it has happened. I have en employees table and store in many places, on tables, the id of the employee that performed some action. Yes, I know, that could be in an audit trail but it isn't. For example, who printed a sales order, who processed it etc is stored on the sales orders table. Well, I have run out of indexes on the employees table when trying...

Hello, World! Reading this group for some time I came to the conclusion that people here are split into several fractions regarding size_t, including, but not limited to, * size_t is the right thing to use for every var that holds the number of or size in bytes of things. * size_t should only be used when dealing with library functions.

The more data you include in your tables the more you will need to have indexes to search and sort that data. However, there is a balance between having enough indexes and too many. Too many indexes will slow down the speed of updates on your records. Access presets a number of Indexes for you. If you look in Tools ... Options under the Tables/Queries tab you will see that under "Auto Index on Import/Create" there is a list as follows: ...
