[OSM-dev] Proposed database improvement

Since the query update, It appears the database server is now receiving 
and processing around 3-4x the rate of queries (at least according to 
IOwait and Ethernet statistics), and is nowhere near capacity constrained.

I wonder how much of that extra load is productive?

In other words, perhaps the amount of load which can be generated can 
increase much faster than the useful work. Should we consider how to 
improve the ratio? For this, we'd need to define useful work, which 
could be politically and practically difficult.
