    Welcome to the forums.

    There isn't any specific guideliness to state that so and so will get you the fine tune of database, you should come out with more details such as the performance loss symptoms, system configuration and any problems that you may see.

    Also I would encourage to get my book (see the signature) which can guide the administration level tips and tricks that you can take advantage.

    It is a big article ....But please start with studying Query Execution plans and how to identify Ugly part + enhance them and how to transfer voluntary Index scans to index Seek with the minimal I/O + CPU cost as possible

    Hi Salim,
    Welcome to forums.
    the one line question could be answered by writing a couple of books only. (That's why Satya recommended his book)
    A couple of years back Mcgee wrote a few articles in this site under a series SQL Server 2005 Performance Audit. Most of the things are applicable to 2008 too. I believe they are still available. That too is a good start.
