I suspect that you may need to get a specialist in (on-site) for a couple of days. I can recommend some good people here. Sounds like it's maybe too big/complex a problem for the forums.

Thanks for the offer, but we are in South Africa.

I will figure this one out though. Will wait for it to raise its head again.

... and Gail is the one I would call to save my life with a problem like this. Can't ask for a better consultant.

Good luck!

I'd agree with views and indexed views as an option to restructure underlying data.

I'd also note that on the "buy truly excessive hardware" side, there are commodity 4U servers that can be bought with 1TB of RAM, Fusionio ioDrive PCIe SSD's, and well over 1TB of SATA/SAS SSD's as well (at that level, you'd be looking at controller bottlenecks).

If nothing else, sticker shock from some of that hardware may... encourage... management to allow more redesign of the database and/or the software itself.

Sean, next time it happens, if you're allowed to investigate, feel free to post specific questions and we'll see what we can help with.
