    Angry Rebuild Index

    Hello All,
    I would like to know ,what will be best approach to solve fragmented table/index.Our database size is 20g.DBA before me did unlimited on tablespace and now one of the tablespace has reached to
    12 g and i belive that there are lots of delete.Also we are planning
    to have new servers in mar.'03.So should i wait until than to reorganize database or is there anyway which take minimal time .
    1)Recreate table.
    2)Rebuild Index.
    3)Rebuild database.
    If its rebuilding index,what will be the right steps
    doing that online.Is it only one command below....

    1)alter index test1 rebuild compute statistics.
    i tried that on our development server.After doing for some of the index,it crash database.

    If you say there are lot of deletes took place then I would suggest export/import complete schema, thought it will take bit more time but It will be useful. And if you know specific tables, then just export/import those tables..

    well you say you "believe" there are fragmentation but have you really looked into these tables/indexes and see if they are really fragmentated? If they are not use your time for more productive jobs

    Unlimited... on whay. Tablespace default parameter, datafile size...

    12 GB.. is this for a particular file or the database on a whole?

    I'd repost the results of the following queries to give us a larger understanding in what you are delaing with. A simple Import/Export, probably won't effectiviely deal with future fragmentation.

    t.tablespace_name "Tablespace",
    t.status "Status",
    ROUND((MAX(d.bytes)/1024/1024) - (NVL(SUM(f.bytes),0)/1024/1024),2) "Used MB",
    ROUND(NVL(SUM(f.bytes),0)/1024/1024,2) "Free MB" ,
    t.initial_extent "Initial Extent",
    t.next_extent "Next Extent",
    t.min_extents "Min Extents",
    t.max_extents "Max Extents",
    t.pct_increase "Pct Increase" ,
    SUBSTR(d.file_name,1,80) "Datafile name"
    WHERE t.tablespace_name = d.tablespace_name
    AND f.tablespace_name(+) = d.tablespace_name
    AND f.file_id(+) = d.file_id
    GROUP BY t.tablespace_name , d.file_name , t.initial_extent , t.next_extent ,
    t.min_extents , t.max_extents , t.pct_increase , t.status
    ORDER BY 1,3 DESC;

    Select owner, segment_name, segment_type, tablespace_name, round(bytes/1024/1024,2) "MB", initial_extent, next_extent, extents from dba_segments
    where owner not in ('SYS', 'SYSTEM')
    and extents > 100;
