I think something is wrong here.
I have a setup with over 120k alerts, MySQL, K6-3D 400MHz 64Mb running also a webserver
which doesn't take an "extremely long" time to do the queries (with ACID on
an internal host).
The first page view of the day (where acid does the caching, i.e., it
takes longer than usual) just took 67s, and it archived 3449 alerts. The next
reload (shift-reload, to bypass cache, etc) took 16s.
