Checking database consistency

If you experience hardware or operating system failure, you can use the SYSCS_UTIL.SYSCS_CHECK_TABLE function to verify that the database is still consistent.

Check consistency only if there are indications that such a check is needed because a consistency check can take a long time on a large database.
