Database Archive Saves user transaction, system event, and user session information to files on the server and purges this information from the database. For information, refer to Archiving and Purging database.
Database Cleaner Searches for and replaces host record objects that have the same host name, but that are assigned to multiple IP addresses. This function corrects a specific condition introduced by the migration tools in previous versions of Address Manager. For information, refer to Database Cleaner.
Database Re-index Rebuilds the Address Manager database index. Use this function if you notice a decline in Address Manager performance. For information, refer to Re-indexing the database.

Use the Database Archive and Database Re-index functions as part of ongoing database maintenance to keep the database at an efficient and manageable size. The Database Cleaner function addresses a specific issue and you need to use it only once to clean up your database.
