Large Database Question

This is a continuation of post:,353250,353625#msg-353625

I'm sorry I wasn't clear. 3 to 4 GROUPS of inserts per minute after the database is initially populated. There could be 100s of rows to insert per minute for some of these tables. Also, after new rows are inserted, updates do have to be done, which if I'm interpreting correctly from your previous response would block any selects on a MyIsam table?

I am using an auto increment for one of the crucial tables in this project currently so I'm glad to hear that using this is extremely cheap.

Initially, when the database is first being populated, there will be thousands if not tens of thousands of rows to insert per minute, but during this process no one will need to access them except the program that initially inserted them.

Again, sorry, but I'm still working on an example we can use to discuss the design of this database.
