Hmm, I lean more towards Joel. After all, the statement is just an observation, which we can't really question. The interesting bit is to find out what caused this observation. There may be a common root for both phenomena (for example, heavy insert activity at end of month just before old data is purged, leading to tablespaces filling up AND queries being slow). But of course, there is by far too many detail to only start guessing about something like that. We do not even know what "performance degradation" means. Is it queries, inserts, backup etc.? Just one statement or multiple? ...

Kind regards
