The Rebuild Indexes task rebuilds indexes used by the Configuration Manager 2007 site database. An index is a database structure created on a database table to speed up data retrieval. For example, searching an indexed column is often much faster than searching a column that is not indexed.

To improve performance, the Configuration Manager 2007 site database indexes are frequently updated to remain synchronized with the constantly changing data stored in the database. This task creates indexes on database columns that are at least 50 percent unique, drops indexes on columns that are less than 50 percent unique, and rebuilds all existing indexes that meet the data uniqueness criteria.

Defaults    Runs every Sunday, between midnight and 5:00 A.M.
