FYI - I currently have over 1600 items/images in each of the thumb and image
We are using ext2 or ext3 (been awhile since the system was built), and IC
4.8.x with a little customization.

When I upgrade to 5.x I will probably address the hashing suggestion, but we
really haven't noticed much performance lag, and with the increase in
processor power, and disk speed.....I may not take the time...
The main database is Mysql. The web server (Redhat 7.x) only has about 512K
ram, and running on a 2ghz AMD processor.

I recently built a Gentoo system for the Mysql server using Resierfs, and it
has been up and running great for about 6 months.
