Well, then you can save at most 1 second by changing the program to be both mod_perl (or something similar) aware, and by using some database connection pooling mechanism. You might be able to save a little on the database work by using different indices or a different layout. But that also saves you at most 2 seconds.

The majority of the possible savings will be from changing the code. But you say you can't make major modifications. There isn't a magical wand you can wave that instantly makes all programs faster. So, I'd say, your task is impossible.

    We are reluctant to make modifications because we want the product to still be the product, if that makes any sense. Along the same lines, investing a lot of programmer time in changing the code now probably means investing a lot of time in changing the code when we upgrade.

    If you can't tell, I don't have much faith in this product.
