Before changing the key_buffer_size you might want to check your
existing cache hit rate. I have several hundred recordings and even
with the key_buffer_size at the default 16MB, I am getting well over
99% cache hit rate.
Moving the temp directory to tmpfs in many cases will give a nice boost
in performance, especially if the your tmp directory is on a mechanical
disk. I just use the /run/mysqld directory, since /run is typically
mounted as a tmpfs already.
