Change sequence of access path rebuilds to be based on use rather than size
When access paths are rebuilt; the database sequences the rebuilds to occur based on index size descending. Since history tables and indexes may be quite large but are not often used in Production processing; this presents a roadblock to making the system fully available to the users. In order to restore the system to operational state for Production more quickly; it would be beneficial if the system sequenced the access path rebuilds to occur based on "member open count" descending; assuring tables which aren't frequently used rebuilt last.
