Its typically a good idea to run optimize aligned with the frequency of updates to the Delta Table. However you also don't want to over do as there's a cost/performance trade-off. Unless there are very frequent updates to the table that can cause small files or impact data organization signficantly, running optimize once per day is a good strategy
