I was called in to look at a GP database because users noticed a slowdown in performance.
Upon running dm_db_index_physical_stats on the company databases I found over 160 tables where the avg_fragmentation_in_percent is over 95%. Just about every transaction table plus most of the historical transaction tables were like this.The SOP tables were near 100%.
What have others used to reduce this type of index fragmentation on a GP database?

This is very good topic to disucss
We should discuss this like a senate debate and share our experiences and have general recommanded policy as best practices.
There are lot of confusions floating around while there is still no guidelines set to follow.
I will also suggest that MS should also outline some recommondations to help the community for the future
