Attached at the end of this post is a set of NAV objects that collects index usage information, and displays it in a NAV client so that you can sort tables by no. of Indexes / Index Reads / (Index) Block wait time, etc.:
The tool is using these three SQL Queries / DMVs:
The information that is collected is already described in these posts:
So the new thing is that now the information is read into NAV, making it more easy to browse through it, get an overview, and having information from various queries collected in one place.
The tool contains the following objects:
And it assumes that you have a partner's developers license.
To run it:
Run form 74102 "IUIT Table List". First set up the SQL connection by clicking Table -> Setup, and specify SQL Server Name, Database Name and credentials.
Then go back to the "IUIT Table List"-form, and click Functions -> Update.
After the tool has collected the information (takes a few minutes), you can sort your tables by a number of factors which can all affect performance. And you can look at indexes for each table (Table -> Indexes (Ctrl+F5)), and get statistics for each individual index.

Do you have a version with Pages instead of Forms?
Unfortunately no page-based tool is currently planned.
Nowadays I would just run the query, especially "Index Usage Query" linked above on SQL Server, and get the results into Excel.
I have transformed the pages and edited the code so it now runs on 2013. Do you want the new objects?
Changes are both marked in code and on version list.
