Hello, I am trying to analyze existing indexes on few tables. I think I can do this by using system views like sys.db_dm_index_usagestats, physicalstats and operationalstats. I am here trying to figure out disk space used by each index, I/O stats ,fragmentation etc I am wondering if ,Apart these views, there are some other effective measures for the same? For accessing these views, one needs to have VIEW DATABASE STATE permission. As of now, I don't have it. However,If this is the only way to access information then, Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Those DMVs would be the correct method to view that information.

Any of the legacy methods will not show you that information without having the same rights as needed to view these DMVs.
