Hello Vince,

I ran into a similar issue at one stage which turned out to be when the 
server was getting backed up. It might be worth enabling the slow query 
log (if it isn't already enabled) and checking that to see if any 
queries happen to be running for a long time when that happens. Also 
make sure if the tables are InnoDB that you have a large enough buffer 
pool to fit the entire thing in memory, that gives a nice boost. Maybe 
if you want a quick overview of how your server is going give this Perl 
script a go:


Does it happen periodically or is it a random occurance?
