What is Fragmentation in SQL Server ?

Fragmentation:

  • The empty spaces was found in a page, then that empty page is called “fragmentation”.
  • The empty spaces were formed when huge modifications/deletions happen on a index (internally in a table).
  • Fragmentation will impact performance of queries, because those empty spaces occupy variant space for no reason and are not utilized.
