SQL Server page splits per second script

SQL Server Scripts by Burleson Consulting

-- page_splits.sql
However, high fill factor settings can also result in page splits for
clustered indexes when SQL Server enforces the sort order of the clustered
index during INSERT or UPDATE actions. This happens because SQL Server
does not have room on an index page for the requested change, so it has to split
the page to perform the modification. This can result in performance degradation
and can be confirmed by carefully watching the page splits counter, available from
the page_splits query below:

See code depot for full script
counter_name = 'Page Splits/sec' and
object_name like '%Access methods%'
