I’ve been trying out running some queries for a testing scenario and I noticed that when doing a full-scan of a nonclustered index, SQL Server reads more pages than actually are in the index.
As you can see from the image below, my query is (a simple one):
select sometext , somemoretext from tbl
and I have an exact covering nonclustered index for those columns.
In Profiler the number of pages read for this is
22,356 as you can see in the image.
But when looking at the index details, under Fragmentation, the number of pages for this index is
What is the cause for this difference in pages read (
78 to be precise)? Is the number in the Fragmentation section not reliable or is there some other explanation?
The index is not fragmented (or appears not to be), so there are no more pages than those
22,278 .. or are there? I wasn’t able to find an explanation for this online, on Microsoft sites or otherwise.
