Q

When should an Oracle database be reorganized?

An Oracle user asks expert Brian Peasland when an Oracle database should be reorganized.

When should a database be reorganized?
Never. A well-designed database should never need reorganization. It used to be that a DBA would perform a weekly or monthly reorg to help database performance. But today's Oracle databases do not need regularly scheduled reorgs to perform well. Bad design can throw this theory out the window though.
