Erik> Hi folks,
Erik> I've got a database file in which I'm doing a lot of deletes and adds.
Erik> My rows are not fixed length, so I know there is some fragmentation
Erik> going on. Is there a quick way to determine how much space in
Erik> an .ISD file is actually being used?
isamchk -d full-path-to-.ISM-file
(In MySQL 3.23 you will be able to do this with 'SHOW TABLE STATUS table_name')
Erik> On a related note, if I do an update or replace on a variable-width
Erik> row but I don't change it's overall length, will mysql use the same
Erik> storage area for the new row?
Eric> Or does the answer depend on what indexes
Erik> there are, and if a column involving an index was updated? Or perhaps
Erik> something else...???
