No, there is no reason why it should.  The online maintenance runs whilst the database is "live" so there may be a slight performance issue for the devices during this time but it's not likely to be noticed.

But it is recommended this is run during low or even no utilisation periods.

Correct.

Running it during office hours will simply cause a performance issue for the end users, there is no technical reason not to do it and indeed I do this ona regular basis to expedite tasks I am working on.
