We often get the error
Table marked as crashed and should be repaired on some of your mysql tables running on a windows 2003 server.
How can I monitor if a table in a mysql db is "crashed"? Is there a file to watch (would be easy to implement) or do I have to place some query on the db (would be more complicated, as the monitoring tool would need a db login for that) or is there some system parameter to read?. There is an eventlog entry, if the table is touched, but parsing the eventlog does take a very long time.
