I had five databases with thousands of tables each. Some of these tables are large (aprox: 500 MB 1500 MB). I needed to run update statistics daily because my small tables suffer heavy changes (inserts / updates and deletes). Everyday new tables were created and old ones dropped.
I’ve created a control table to store the name and size of each table the last time I have run update statistics on it. Also I’ve wrote a stored procedure that scans sysobjects and sysindexes identifying both new tables both the tables that changed in size at least X %. Finally I’ve scheduled the procedure call on SQL Enterprise Manager.
For SQL Server 6.5
