Optimize SQL database

This feature uses MySQL built in function OPTIMIZE TABLE for each of your database tables. You should use this periodically to ensure optimum database performance, specifically when you have performed large data changes, such as data imports.

Note that MySQL locks the table during the time OPTIMIZE TABLE is running, so you should place your site in Maintenance Mode before use.
