This site is running WordPress 3.1.1, with a Flexx theme:
It tends to run very slowly unless database optimization is performed frequently, every week at least.
This blog is only medium sized:
there are 12,000 records, and total data usage is 11.6 megs, and index usage is 6.8 megs. Only the WordPress default tables are present.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to find out why the DB needs frequent optimization?
