Almost never.

But it is risky and can lead to bad performances.

There is no criteria to rebuild an index.
There are very few cases this can be useful although most often shrink is sufficient. These cases are not defined by index properties by how you use them that is functional properties.

Rebuild index is necessary if you want to change tablespace of the intended index or change storage/tablespace parameters or to reduce fragmentation.

Yes, rebuild index can /may not shrink heights.

Except for changing tablespace and /or changing storage parameter I always prefer coalesce the index.

What is index fragmentation?
This is a delusion.
When you are not doing an exceptional operation (like massive purge), index has a natural fragmentation degree. Whatever you do, it will tend to do back to this degree but it does it at coast (split blocks and internal reorganisation on the fly).
So each time you rebuild an index, you tend to decrease performances.

Michel

I believe. But exceptional also has a degree. Laughing As you specified exceptional operation (like massive purge) as well as robust increase of it can do fragmentation. Yet I prefer always coalesce the index rather than rebuild.

i think ...i dont need any rebuilding. but whats this???

you may want to consider rebuilding any index where the height is more than three levels, since three levels will support millions of index entries.
