idintID of table (for indid = 0 or 255). Otherwise, ID of table to which the index belongs.
statusintInternal system-status information.
firstbinary(6)Pointer to the first or root page.
indidsmallintID of index: 1 = clustered index; >1 = nonclustered; 255 = entry for tables that have TEXT or IMAGE data
rootbinary(6)For indid >= 1 and < 255, root is the pointer to the root page. For indid = 0 or indid = 255, root is the pointer to the last page.
minlensmallintMinimum size of a row.
keycntsmallintNumber of keys.
groupidsmallintFilegroup ID on which the object was created.
dpagesintFor indid = 0 or indid = 1, dpages is the count of data pages used. For indid=255, it is set to 0. Otherwise, it is the count of index pages used.
reservedintFor indid = 0 or indid = 1, reserved is the count of pages allocated for all indexes and table data. For indid = 255, reserved is a count of the pages allocated for text or image data. Otherwise, it is the count of pages allocated for the index.
