5.8 Maintenance of the MySQL database

Weekly to monthly error checks on MySQL tables is recommended. Best is to use:

     # isamchk -s -O readbuffer=2M */*.ISM

Other options allow automatic correction of errors, but are dangerous if tables are accessed while isamchk is running.

Other isamchk options allow recovery of space after frequent insert/delete of addresses (can also be done with ‘OPTIMIZE TABLE’), key optimization, etc. See the MySQL documentation for more info.
