i have a maintenance plan setup to run a weekly index.  Within the maintenance plan i have a rebuild index task and a reorganize index task.  I just wanted to ask the experts if it is recommended to do both or if i could just use the rebuild task and not worry about reorganizing index task.  

I want to avoid the huge log file that is created when running the reorganizing index task but i don't want to eliminate the reorganizing index task if it is something that will be important.

Also, i should mention that the job that includes reorg and rebuild is failing due to the log file filling up.  Maybe i can change settings for the log file to allow a bigger one and then run the job nightly instead of weekly...

Any thoughts?
