Index Maintenance and msdb database

I recently analyzed index fragmentation and found that msdb had some severely fragmented indexes. This was definitely the case on older instances where backup history had been deleted over time. The tables with fragmented indexes were:

  • backupset
  • backupfile
  • backupmediaset

Lesson learned – Include msdb in routine database maintenance.
