During index rebuilding the table on which the index rebuilding going on will be locked for DML operations till rebuilding gets completed.
You can have index rebuilding with ONLINE to avoid locking.

And have tablespace doubled in size after an online rebuild.
Question is, why do you need to rebuild?

It is right that tablespace will take the same amount of size as the size of the index. It is used for the temporary segment and once rebuilding completed the space will be released.

Question is, why do you need to rebuild?

Released for other segments not released in OS.

In addition, using "online" may lead to ORA-01555 or ORA-01410 errors.

Hi,

I may add a risk: leaf block splitting.

When you rebuild the index it will use the PCTFREE value used at creation time, and according to it will fill blocks until only PCTFREE space is available; as PCTFREE gets near 0, the risk (and overhead) of leaf block splitting increases.

I recommend this excellent document for details
Richard Foote's: Index Internals-Rebuilding the truth

And this series for particular info regarding index key compression

Honey, I shrunk the indexes-Part 3
