Is it safe to stop a Maintenance Plan Reorganise Index task? We have a job that has been running for 6 hours and is slowing down our most important server. The job is called DBMaintenance.Index Reorganise (Daily) which, I think, was the name given to it by the company that set up the server. The job appears to originate in the Maintenance Plans section of Management. It contains the following components: Reorganize Index Task, Update Statistics Task, Maintenance Cleanup Task. Assuming one of these is currently running, what will be the consequences of stopping the job?
Should a job of this sort last between 3 and 8 hours (times taken from Log File Viewer)?
Is it possible to see what the server is actually stuck on at the moment?
