Thank you for your reply.
I also did some google search before asking the question, but didn't
find anything, only about the size of the data returned by mySQL.

What makes you think of a possible design issue ?
The ids are auto-incremented every time a new entry is added to the
table, and the ids in the request are obtained by intersecting various
multi-dimensional arrays that make very complex searches very fast
(less than 1 sec, when it takes 5 to 10 sec with regular SQL queries).
