about: what storage engine would you recommend we try, Ari or? Some of these tables contain in excess of a million rows. Is there anything I should be aware of before converting tables?

well, only table size isn't a metric to select a engine... it's read only? 10% read 90% write? 10% write 90% read? you need table or row lock?

i have some myisam tables that i converted to aria just to allow a crash safe feature, it works

i don't have centos to answer your first questions, maybe the binary is easier... just untar and change your my.cnf to point to new share,data,binary files and directories

When I was stating the table size, I was merely wondering if there is anything I should be aware of when converting a MyISAM to one of the other storage engines and not meaning it as a metric. Apologies for not making that clear. I was also looking to find out which storage engine would be the closest to feature set, etc. to MyISAM? Many thanks!
