I wonder if is it really necessary / useful to run a gfix -sweep? Maybe
after a massive deletion or insertion of records ?

With Firebird, garbage collection is a continuous activity. You don't
have to do anything. If you want to force a complete garbage collection
use gfix -sweep from the command line or through the Services API if
you're using the embedded version.
