In UCM, an index optimization can be done from the Administration menu -> "Text Search Admin" page. Clicking the button for “Optimize Index” will start the process of optimizing the index used for searching content.

The OPTIMIZE_INDEX procedure is part of Oracle Text within the Oracle database. This procedure gets called by UCM when the button is clicked. Optimizing an index removes old data and minimizes index fragmentation, which can improve query response time. Querying and DML may proceed while optimization takes place.
