Thanks for the reply!

Also if you have the time, I'd love to get your input on this:

I realized that using InnoDB on this setup was not optimal. I did not need the data integrity -that much- - MyISAM has worked fine for this for years. I thought it might give me a more mature model, but I think I need a good RAID/hardware setup to support that (and more memory) before that would be even close to worthwhile.

I converted all the tables back to MyISAM (using simple ALTER foo ENGINE=MyISAM) - and the load went down some. Still not as fast as I had hoped, but it's "getting closer"

~~~

I've got it nearly 200qps now. Which I think is decent for this. However it still seems to eat a lot of system resources and a "vmstat" shows how the system is constantly spiking up and down...

Threads: 4 Questions: 26944 Slow queries: 0 Opens: 0 Flush tables: 1 Open tables: 95 Queries per second avg: 189.746

I enabled the query cache (something I've never bothered with before...) and gave it 128M
I bumped up the table_cache to 300

Here's the status/variables now. Let me know if you see anything else out of the ordinary or any other optimizations you may think of (based on the read/write ratio and such) - I appreciate it A LOT.
