PostgreSQL Database blockchain maintenance/optimize
Why do you need maintenance?
Over time, the bases in the postgres tend to grow, and begin to move more slowly due to problems with indexing. To solve these problems we use:
REINDEX - operation of reindexing, fixing damaged indexes in the database.
VACUUM - garbage collection. VACUUM recovers the space occupied by the "dead" data. When performing normal operations with data, PostgreSQL does not physically remove data from the tables; this happens with the FULL VACUUM operation.
