Tuning the performance of MySQL can be a really hard job to do.
There are many thinks to consider and no two servers are identical so there is no universal solution.
Tuning Primer is a script that will help you tune your mysql installation by providing very healthy recommendations based on past mysql records.
For the script to be efficient you must run the mysql server for at least 48 hours.

Installation is extremely simple:

1. Download the script


2. Change the permissions for the file

chmod 755

3. Run it


4. Apply the sugesttions

Try to increase max_user_connections in your config to 200 or something higher, depending on how many times you  your script will be querying the database at the same time.
Also try to increase a bit the read_buffer_size.
