Database Utilities

Are there any utilities that should be run to optimize your databases?

We are running Mysql 5.7...and we have some large tables (1.5 million records) that we feel are slowing down our system, so as a test, I deleted all records older than 5 years, just to see how it affected my performance. To my surprise, on particular report went from running for about 25 seconds to running for over 5 minutes when I did that! So, this lead me down the path where maybe some of our latency is due to tables not being optimized from time to time.

Using other data types, it was necessary to run utilities that would remove deleted records from your tables, or to reindex them...but I always thought that SQL products dealt with that without any user intervention. Am I wrong about that? Any thoughts as to why I just saw such a drastic change in performance?
