An esri blog article (5 Best Practices SDE Maintenance) states, when discussing updating statistics for an ArcSDE, "... in situations where all users are editing just the SDE.DEFAULT version [this is my case], you should just keep the statistics you collected before the compress. This will ensure that the query optimizer knows the delta tables are still active."
What does this mean? Does this mean I should not run the Compress tool prior to running the Analyze Dataset tool, but to do so only afterwards? This does not follow the maintenance workflow described here: Recommended version administration workflow (ArcGIS Help).
