Default Retrieve Index Status of a table

Hi All,

I want to know the status of an index whether it is corrupted or it needs to be reindexed etc ?

I used the sp_MShelpindex tablename stored procedure to retrieve the status also.

In the status column it is showing as 0,2 and 2000 values . what are these values ?



With Regards,

Since this is an undocumented stored procedure, your chances of finding out what these values mean are probably slim to none.

Did you try sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats?
