I've been searching the web but have only been able to find really minimal (a couple short vague sentences at best?) information for SharePoint 2010 concerning its timer jobs and what actions they are actually taking. The same has been
true of its databases.
Might anyone know of a special hidden place to find such information, even at a relatively high level? =)
I do not seek to modify any schema or make updates outside of the API and I wouldn't suggest such to anyone either! It would just be nice to have even the slightest amount of general public information in these areas.
For example: A content database has a stored procedure called proc_DefragmentIndices. It might be useful to know in what case(s) is this called and at what rate? Is there a timerjob that uses it? Or a timerjob that uses it conditionally based on the
result of another time job? Are there other internal routines which run surreptitously performing X task(s)? One just can't know up front as there is no documentation to tell either way.
A goal may be to have a basic reference by which one could plan and optimize their own routines and processes, to avoid errors, and in support of the system and its integrity. Free knowledge!
Please kindly pardon if this is my ignorance and I have totally walked
