This raised a question for me. How could you investigation your indices to determine last use, number of records affected, etc across all your files.
Perhaps indices are no longer required and could be deleted and would that improve performance?

Basically, if they're going to just shotgun blast an index rebuild they may
end up shooting themselves in the foot.

In general I do not see the benefit. However it may make a difference in
the order the indexes were built. For example, which is the proper order
to build these two indexes?
order, line, receipts (handles partials)
order, line
or
order, line
order, line, receipts

We have a client who wants to rebuild indexes, just because they haven't
been built for a long time (3-4 years). They think it will improve
performance. I've never rebuilt indexes to improve performance. Does
anyone
have an opinion on this?
