If a clear was a "delete from table" followed by a reorg I'd agree, but my
understanding is that it's a special function where the database understands
that ALL the rows are going to be toasted so indicies aren't maintained
during the clear.

Walden,

It's always been my impression that as the data is cleared the access paths
are maintained at that time.  Thus if you have a bunch of them the clear
takes longer.  I'm not aware of any "access path invalidation" although I'm
not as close to the system technically as I used to be.  Maybe this has been
improved over the last several releases, but it always seemed that the same
file with and without related access paths cleared in much different amounts
of time.

Bill
