errr..... create an index? :0

this question is not related to perl - it is about database management.

the only think you might consider that is related to perl, is make sure
your code works in an optimal manner (e.g. uses static SQL rather the uses
cursors. takes data from the server in proper amounts at a time - neither
one record at a time, nor all the results at once for a query that has
a very large amount of records in its results).
