Hi, we are looking for some feedback on developing more performance  
tuning snippets.

Please try this out: http://drupal.org/node/50291

This should work in a MySQL 4.0 and 4.1 environment.  I got a chance  
to spend some time with Brian Aker, the head of architecture for  
MySQL, again today.  He suggested we use InnoDB for large sites and  
that we investigate using Archive table types which are designed  
specifically for tables like accesslog in Drupal.  Apparently they  
had some significant performance improvements at Yahoo, LiveJournal,  
and Slashdot.
