When I upgraded from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 using the upgrade script I was under the impression MyISAM tables would be converted to InnoDB. This doesn't seem to be the case. Tables like comment, node, and block and many others remain as MyISAM. Tables like cache and field_* are InnoDB.
As far as I can tell it's best practice to use InnoDB. My website is a blog and forum, so users are posting comments, creating nodes, and voting on content. The site serves up an average of 30k pageviews a day.
Assuming everything was InnoDB I configured MySQL with: innodb_log_file_size = 256M and innodb_buffer_pool_size = 11G.
I believe it makes sense to convert all my tables to InnoDB. I wanted to ask here to see if anyone ran into this issue (conversion not taking place) or if anyone knew why the tables weren't converted. And, if I do convert everything to InnoDB, is there anything I need to know?
