On Db2 for i the indexes are always up to date.
Also the (Key) Tree Structure in an Binary Radix Tree index is always
optimized contrary to other databases, where you have to rebuilt your
indexes regularly for to optimize the tree structure.
If the tree structure is not optimized performance can decrease.
... another advantage having the database integrated in the operating

So recreating indexes and logical files on Db2 for i will not result in a
better performance.

Subject: Do any of you have a policy on rebuilding indexes?

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?
