If you’re a full time database administrator, then rather than using maintenance plans, you should upgrade to Ola Hallengren’s maintenance scripts. They’re free, open source, and are used all over the world to do powerful, configurable maintenance tasks. For support and feature requests, head to Ola’s Github repository.

    Can you re-record this with a better mic? It’s rather hard on the ears.

    • Sure! I’ll put this on my backlog to re-record. I’ve been kinda holding off, keeping an eye on the number of issues on Ola’s Github repository – he hasn’t been active in the last year, and I’m waiting to see if he picks back up again. If he doesn’t, I’m starting to think I won’t recommend those scripts, so waiting as long as I can. Thanks though!

    For IndexOptimize, @PageCountLevel is no longer an option with Ola’s scripts.
