The better the info you supply by way of problem description, the better
the solution is.

A good place to start would be to provide a sample of the SQL for one of
your slow queries. Inappropriate SQL is a very common cause of bad
performance. Not clear what you mean by "the internal structure of the
tables and indexes".
