PA Database Maintenance tasks

Hi guys,

Please explain what these tasks exactly do. We are already doing reindexing on our database, do I still need to run these tasks?

Re: PA Database Maintenance tasks

Second one will report the fragmentation of your indexes and space usage by table.

The first one starts index rebuild/reorg on your sql server,

If you already have a maintenance plan on sql, you don't really need those.

Re: PA Database Maintenance tasks

I agree that the first task listed can be redundant. But the second can be used independently, and could be used to generate data for trending. I'm sure that SQL admins could cook-up something similar, but it's much easier to let the product do it for you and see the results within the GUI.
