Here are few terms that you might be seeing for the first time & I have explained them below for better understanding.
What’s a transient option?
Transient Options are like a basic cache system used by WordPress. Clearing these options before a backup will help to save space in your backup files.
You should not lose anything by removing the transient options, as that system is build to rebuild the cache of transient options after a specified period of if they do not exist.
What is oEmbed Cache?
WordPress uses oEmbed to grab the embed code for various embeddable content such as YouTube and Vimeo videos. Sometimes, though, the embed code that your WordPress installation receives through oEmbed is damaged.
In this case, the only real solution is to clear your oEmbed cache so that WordPress knows to try to fetch new embed code.
Once you are done sweeping all the options that you want to clean, click on the sweep in “Database sweep,” it will Optimize your WordPress database. This is an important step after you done cleaning a WordPress blog DB.
Overall, WP Sweep is one plugin which you or anyone can use without technical knowledge. It saves you from all tech jargon & makes the cleaning up WordPress database easy.
