When should you rebuild an index

“How do you when it time to rebuild an index?” I like to use the rule of thumb that if the blevel column in DBA_INDEXES is greater 4, it’s time to rebuild the index. Make sure that you analyze the index before checking the blevel columns (analyze index owner.table_name estimate statistics sample 20 percent).
