Database Maintenance

The Database Maintenance node of the navigation tree contains the functionality for reindexing the individual database tables and defragmenting a database.

The Reindex option completely reindexes each table in the database. The Defragment option simply defragments the indexes. If you run the Reindex option, you do not need to run the Defragment option since there is nothing to defragment if all the indexes are new.

Using these functions can aid in reducing the time it takes to read data from and write data to the database:

Resource Intensive

Schedule the Reindex job to run every day after all the gathering tasks have completed.

Less Resource Intensive

Schedule the Defragment job to run every weekday (Monday through Friday) after all the gathering tasks have completed.

Schedule the Reindex job to run on the weekend (or once a month) after all the gathering tasks have completed.
