I was reading about index fill factors & performance, and out on a whim I tried the query given by the webpage on the company's production SQL Server 2000 server:
SELECT * FROM MASTER.dbo.sysperfinfo WHERE counter_name ='Page Splits/sec' AND OBJECT_NAME LIKE'%Access methods%'
Imagine my shock when I saw the result is 12164778 (yes, that's larger than 12 million).
Is it actually possible to have 12 million page splits per second? Or am I reading the numbers incorrectly? Or is there a mistake in the query?
