Maintaining indexes with exchange partition
Posted by: Andrew Edwards

We have a requirement to have a table partitioned by month to allow us to use exchange partition to swap in updated partitions on a regular basis. I want to understand how indexes are maintained on other columns in this scenario. When exchange partition is ran it will swap in the new data. I believe this is a simple file system operation of moving the new data in. How and when is the indexes updated? Or does it just retain the index data from the source table?
