There is only 1 clustered index allowed per table so choose wisely. This index should be the most common column that is in your WHERE clauses for queries against this table. So if most of the time you search by primary key, then leave it as the default. But if you search by DateCreated or LastName most of the time on this table, then you might want to consider changing the clustered index to this column instead.
Some things to remember when using clustered indexes:
There a few things to keep in mind when changing the default clustered index in a table:
Best Practices for Clustered Indexes
Non-clustered indexes are not copies of the table but a sorting of the columns you specify that "point" back to the data pages in the clustered index. This is why the clustered index you choose is so important because if effects all other indexes.
There are 2 modes for non-clustered indexes, Non-unique and unique. Non-Unique means that the index does not act as a constraint on the table and does not prevent identical rows from being inserted. Unique constraints mean that the index prevents any identical rows from being inserted.
Best Practices for Non-clustered Indexes
Indexes are a lot of "trial and error" depending on your database design, SQL queries, and database size.
