But shouldn't that still leave us with a 75% full index, rather than slightly over 50% full? The leaf pages start at 50%, grow to 100%, then split back to 50%, then grow back to 100%. So the average should be about 75%. > However your index rebuild gets you from 5 to 3 GB - does that really help > performance significantly? It can make a big difference, depending on how much RAM you have.
