aria checksum


I have data which I want to store in the aria storage engine, the data is 
inserted then never updated or deleted, although the table could be truncated. 
 This data could potentially be replicated in production.  The data is inserted 
in parallel and once the table reaches a certain capacity data is no long 
inserted into it.

My question is, would I want to turn on the checksum for this data?  And, if 
yes, should I use table checksum or page checksum?  What are the advantages / 
disadvantages of this?  I tried searching docs and couldn't find a breakdown so 
if someone could answer this or point me to a doc or discussion that would be 

Right now I am using DYNAMIC row format since I want the smallest footprint
