Too many indexes slow data modification

If data modification performance is poor, you may have too many indexes.While indexes favor select operations, they slow down data modifications.

Every insert or delete operation affects the leaf level, (and sometimes higher levels) of a clustered index on a data-only-locked table, and each nonclustered index, for any locking scheme.

Updates to clustered index keys on allpages-locked tables can move the rows to different pages, requiring an update of every nonclustered index. Analyze the requirements for each index and try to eliminate those that are unnecessary or rarely used.
