It depends on what you do; If you don't delete big blocks of data and
don't reuse these at once or have dynamic length rows that are updated
a lot, then you need to run isamchk (or OPTIMIZE TABLE) once in a
while. If not, you don't need to run isamchk. You can find a lot
more information about this in the MySQL manual!
