Here’s a nice one already done up for you! The following select shows you the indexes SQL 2005 server (portfolio) thinks could use some index tuning. The fourth column from the left shows us what impact the user can expect to have – not always 100% right on, but it gives some idea. The second column really tells us usage.
sys.dm_db_missing_index_details d
inner join
sys.dm_db_missing_index_groups g ON
d.index_handle = g.index_handle
inner join
sys.dm_db_missing_index_group_stats s ON
g.index_group_handle = s.group_handle
order by
left (avg_user_impact,1) desc,
user_seeks desc,
unique_compiles desc; Michael

when I ran below query I got the result now my question is, How should I interpret the result as in the result I’m having equality_columns, inequality_columns, included_columns which represents the column names where the indexes are missing on a given table but on which column I should I create the index….
select * from sys.dm_db_missing_index_details Rohit
