The scattering of index pages means that the disk heads have to move around a lot more leading to poor performance.Now that we have talked about the problems that fill factor can help us with, we should talk about the dark side. Setting the fill factor to anything other than the default decreases the rows per page for that index, thereby increasing the number of pages that must be read.The National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST, maintains a Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures.The dictionary is a great place to go to find out what people are talking about.The same rules apply, the only difference is the columns that are being used.For larger databases consider limiting the scan to a single table or even a single index.
My method of setting fill factors is to calculate the rows per page of an index then use the expected change in rows between reindex operations to figure out what percentage of rows need to be left free per page.
