Question: How to List All ColumnStore Indexes with Table Name in SQL Server? As ColumnStore Indexes are getting more and more popular.
I have been writing a lot of my findings with SQL Server 2016 in the recent past. This is also being something I have been investing big time keeping my session at SQLPASS coming in the October timeframe. I will be talking on a number of capabilities and enhancements around SQL Server 2016 from a performance standpoint that it is critical for me to explore some. I invest considerable time in preparation for any session and every single year going to SQLPASS has been the highlight and most of the time it is about hard work to make sure everyone attending my session gets the best of content. Also, it is a great way for me to do due diligence and homework as I prepare with real world problem statement with possible alternatives and solutions as part of my session.

In the recent past, I have written a number of posts around ColumnStore Index and how they function. Some of the nuances of working with ColumnStore Indexes are available in this blog for reference. I have also written a few posts around Extended Events. One of my DBA friends pinged me to check if there were any way to use Profiler to see how ColumnStore Indexes worked. Obviously, there was nothing much of help I could offer because there were actually none in reality.
