Subject: repairing tables on (marketing intel)

Okay, repairing large tables crashes mysql for whatever reason.  It 
uses too much ram and dies.  So they have to be repaired externally.  
I have created a script on that server for this purpose that uses 
myisamchk.  To use it just execute something like:

repairdb /var/lib/mysql/ares_supply/ares_dht_audio_meta_data

You would change the database and table name as appropriate, this 
will keep the server from crashing and a nasty circular pattern of 1 
repair causing other tables to need repair.

This will spawn a seperate process independent of the mysql server 
process and allows us to pass options to limit memory usage etc.
