Microsoft SQL Server File Layout Viewer
Utility to visually inspect the layout of all the pages in a SQL Server database's physical files, showing page type, fragmentation and free space.
This project is a small Windows Forms application that graphically displays the layout of data pages in SQL Server .mdf and .ndf files, for training, demos, and for physical database design.
The viewer provides a colored "map" of all the data pages in a database across files and filegroups, and color codes them by
- The object they belong to (partition or allocation unit)
- Page Free Space
