There are times when resetting the content store database (the database used by the indexer for crawl processing) may be necessary.  Two of these times are if crawl performance has gradually degraded in a way you suspect that the database may be having issues (this could be indicated by the DBA), or there have been errors in the crawl that you cant recover from.  When an article changes a new copy of that article is saved to the content store database.  Over time this can make the content store database slower.

The steps to reset the contentstore database are listed below.

Note: While in general you should not have to reset revisions to reset the content store database, when there have been error conditions during a crawl it could be necessary to also reset the revisions.  This will require a brief downtime for the runtimes to also reset the revisions there.
