The CI Record

The CI record is the only main structural change to a page when it is page compressed versus a page that uses row compression only. As shown in the previous examples, the CI record is located immediately after the page header. There is no entry for the CI record in the row offset table because its location is always the same. A bit is set in the page header to indicate whether the page is page compressed. When this bit is present, SQL Server knows to look for the CI record. The CI record contains the data elements shown in Table 30.7.
