Is it preferable to run a nightly re-index via the command line or would it be better to run it with Magerun?

(Or doesn't it really make a difference)

It's depends of the total of sku that you have in site

My recommendation is to run the indexer all the time via command line

Why would you recommend this over MageRun? – brentwpeterson Jul 29 '14 at 15:39
My recommendation is to use the default indexer all the time via command line. – ezOSC Jul 29 '14 at 16:03
But why would you? – brentwpeterson Jul 29 '14 at 17:28
Very easy. Why to use an extra tool to do something that came by default with magento? – ezOSC Jul 29 '14 at 21:56
