[mythtv-users] Myth UI Performance bottlenecks

Has anyone looked into what factors most affect the FE UI performance on a
I'm using Graphite on 0.23-fixes and sometimes when I'm navigating the menus
I notice that screens can take a several seconds to load. The worst
examples are generally loading the "watch recordings" and "listen to music"
menus. My music is sitting on a separate drive that is probably spun down
but my recordings drive should nearly always be running so I don't
understand that delay. In addition there is sometimes a long delay (3-5sec)
after exiting a recording before the list of shows comes back up.
Has anyone tried things like:
-moving mysql DB to USB flash, SSD, or ramdrive? Any benefit there?
-moving "small" (posters, banners, etc ) storage groups to a faster drive?
I think that my Core2 E6600 with 2GB of RAM and GT220 should be sufficient
to run myth FE/BE + all my background services (lightly loaded subsonic,
apache2, & samba servers) without hitting cpu bottlenecks but perhaps I need
to reconsider? I've also never been quite satisfied that my cpu frequency
scaling was really working the way it should with vdpau but I did change
FWIW I'm running ubuntu 9.10. I'm interested to hear what performance
related experiments people have done.
