To execute vacuum, you can´t stop the server, is another process of it.
If you are using a recent version of PostgreSQL, you can use autovacuum
on the server and this process is charged of this or to use VACUUM with
the right schedule. You should avoid to use VACUUM FULL, because is very
slow and it requires exclusive locks of the tables that you are
executing this, and it reduces the table size on the disc but It doesn´t
reduce the index size, but iit can make indexes larger.

With autovacuum = on, you can avoid to use VACUUM frecuently

The performance degradation depends of the quantity of tables and
databases that you have on your server.

REINDEX is another task that you can execute periodicly on you server,
but if you don´t want to affect the production task, the best thing yo
do is to drop the index and reissue the CREATE INDEX CONCURRENTLY command.
