Subject:InnoDB vs. other storage engines
View as plain text  
I hope this doesn't end in some kind of flame war.  I'm looking to 
optimize my tables (and performance in general) of the DB my web app is 
using.  I'm tweaking things a little at a time, but I'm curious as to 
what the rest of the MySQL list thinks about changing my storage engine 
from InnoDB to something else so I can optimize the tables on a regular 

Is it worth the effort?  Any caveats?

I've never really encountered this situation before and I'm curious to 
see what others have to say on it.

Thanks in advance.
