ok. i'm repairing a mysql table with 15,000,000 records. it is a little over a gig (1.052gb). i ran 'repair table `name`' about two days ago after a system crash, and it's still sitting there. here is top output
ok... HIGH load . the mysql database exists on a single 40gb SATA Raptor hard disk which is plugged directly into motherboard sata connector. as you can see the system has 1 gig memory. it's a p4 2.4ghz 800fsb cpu/motherboard. it's well cooled and healthy. i haven't had any hardware problems with it at all..
please, can anybody tell me if this is the expected result? how long should i expect to be waiting?
