Is it possible to have too many posts? (4 posts)

    We're having weird performance issues lately - site slowing to a crawl, several times a day. We're exploring what it could be, but I'm wondering if it's possible that we have too many posts - currently approaching 100,000. Is there an upper limit to the number of posts WP/MySQL can handle from a performance standpoint?

    The idea is: what's the best management for older posts, i don't need all the hews of 2005, but I'm affraid to delete them, maybe i lose traffic, ranking or something like that.
    Could I move older posts on a diffrent WP like /archive? Or maybe /2005 ?
    Or what are the best practices?
