vCenter 5.1 SQL 2012 Maintenance Plan

I have trying to improve the performance of our vCenter server which I have inherited. There are daily backups which are successfully but that is it.

I have read the following article on creating a maintenance plan for vCenter DB's.   http://blogs.vmware.com/kb/2013/05/the-inside-scoop-maintenance-tips-for-your-vsphere-database.html 

My question is in regards to the index rebuild, can this be done online and if so should I do I reorg first then since nothing has ever been done on the DB then ease into a rebuild. I know you only do one or the other.

If you are seeking performance enhancements, and are using vCenter Server for Windows, I would highly recommending evaluating the appliance (Linux).

As for the DB, is it fragmented ?

We don't touch of vCenter DBs, other than purge events and tasks.

I have actually implement the recommendation in the blog except I decided to go for the reorg inset of reindex

The DB has never been groomed and is fragmented. I know a reindex is the best fix for this but I wanted to start smaller..
