Quite often there are discussions on database index corruption, and its possible causes - being either physical corruption and logical corruption.


Here are some possible causes for index corruption:
  • DBMS has been improperly shut down, for example a power outage
  • Corrupted blocks in the file-system
  • File-system running out of space
  • Issues with the I/O subsystem, for example hardware failures with SAN controller, RAID controllers, and the hard drives themselves
  • RAM memory corruption (extremely rare)
