The performance of large Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) deployments will degrade over time if the WSUS database is not maintained properly. The WSUSDBMaintenance script is a T-SQL script that can be run by SQL Server administrators to re-index and defragment WSUS 3.0 databases. It should not be used on WSUS 2.0 databases.This script contributed by the Microsoft WSUS team.

If you are using Windows Internal Database, you will need to use the sqlcmd utility, which can be downloaded from Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005. For more information about the sqlcmd utility, see sqlcmd Utility.

To use this script with Windows Internal Database, you should run the following command:

sqlcmd -S np:\\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query –i <scriptLocation>\WsusDBMaintenance.sql

The call to sqlcmd needs to have a -I (capital i) parameter, which tells SQL to run the script with QUOTED_IDENTIFIERS enabled.

/******************************************************************************
This sample T-SQL script performs basic maintenance tasks on SUSDB
1. Identifies indexes that are fragmented and defragments them. For certain
   tables, a fill-factor is set in order to improve insert performance.
   Based on MSDN sample at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188917.aspx
   and tailored for SUSDB requirements
2. Updates potentially out-of-date table statistics.
