If you're encountering performance issues while doing SELECT COUNT(*), it
sounds like you have serious disk IO performance issue.  Is the DB on RAID
subsystem?  If not, why not? If so, what level?  Also, what type of HDDs?
For something like this, it should be RAID 10 with HDDs spinning at least
7200RPM, 10,000+ RPM recommended, connected to a good RAID controller, like
3ware's.  Also, the controller should be in slot PCI-X or, preferably,
