Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.51 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Peoplebooks, there is a section titled Performance Enhancement, which indexes are indicated for the suggestion:
“For better performance and increased speed during archiving processes, try dropping the indexes before inserting data from online tables into history tables.”

Is that applicable for online or history tables or both? Does it apply to only the slowest table or all?
