T-SQL: Index Defragmentation Stored Procedure

Very helpful, from: http://www.sql-server-performance.com/tp_automatic_reindexing.asp

------

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_defragment_indexes @maxfrag DECIMAL

AS

/* T.Pullen

This stored procedure checks index fragmentation in a database and defragments
indexes whose scan densities fall below a specified threshold, @magfrag, which
is passed to the SP. This SP was initially based on a code sample in SQL Server 2000
Books Online.

Must be run in the database to be defragmented.
