How to change the temporary directory when running a myisamchk

Updated: June 16, 2017

When running a myisamchk, it uses the volume that SRM Profiler is installed on by default for its temp directory. If this volume is low on space, the myisamchk may not complete since it essentially replicates each table when checking the index and repairing.

To change this, add --tmpdir = <path> to the myisamchk command in the parameters section.

The following example shows a temp directory on E: drive:

    for %i in (*.MYI) do ..\..\bin\myisamchk --defaults-extra-file=..\..\my.cnf -c -a -r -v --tmpdir = E:emp\ %i

For more information see myisamchk.
