  1. Tables should be cleaned up once in a month and Volume is too huge around 50 Million records I need to delete.

  3. It's a 32 AMP system  

  4.Currently data already exist in the table and the applications/reports make extensive use of this table so we defined PI on different set of Columns.  

  5. I came to know that we cant use a Multi Load delete because dateid is not a PI and MultiLoad delete will work only with WHERE condition on PI Columns.  

You can't use a BEGIN [IMPORT] MLOAD, but a BEGIN DELETE MLOAD: Faster than a SQL delete because there's no Transient Journal and no rollback in case of failure (just restart the job).

Is your DateID column a date or an integer? Then you should think about a Partitioned PI.

But do some test before: This may boost your deletes ans some queries, but other queries may slow down, it depends...
