If your database is static -- that is, it has no inserts or updates,
you can run pack_isam on the *.ISD files and it will compress the data
quite well. This reduces the amount of disk seeks and might also
reduce the *.ISM file size. To get maximal benefit, you really need
to have good indexes defined for your queries.

You get it when you buy extended support (or apparently also if you
buy lots of licenses.) It is a bonus program, binary only
It compresses your tables (making them read-only.)
