It sounds like the problem is just that you have a lot of rows that need to be returned. Can you just put a limit on the query? And then change the client app to recognize when the limit is reached, and either give a link to more results, or refine query, or something like that.I have about 5M names stored on my DB. Currently the searches are very quick unless, they are on a very common last name ie. SMITH. The Index is always used, but I still hit 10-20 seconds on a SMITH or Jones search, and I average about 6 searches a second and max out at about 30/s. Any suggestions on how I could arrange things to make this search quicker? I have 4gb of mem on a raid 5 w/ 3 drives. I'm hoping that I can increase this speed w/o a HW upgrade.
