Big problem can be disk performance. You must have enough of RAM
for cache. You can enable feature dir_index on ext2/ext3 filesystem.
If this is not enough, you can try to setup RAMDISK and work with
RRD files in a RAMDISK. For backup you can periodically copy RRD files
on a harddisk every few minutes or hours.
