[R] loading data and executing queries with R and Mysql

Hello everyone,

I have a problem when I execute queries using R 2.3.1 and MySql server 5.0. What I do: I load data in different csv files (every file represents a particular temporal step of a simulation) using Mysql query "load data" with RMySQL command DbSendQuery (but the same problem there is also using DbWritetable). Then I use a function where I have a lot of queries that interact with the database.
Well, while loading data is very fast, query execution is very slow ...looking to Windows task manager I see that my cpu doesn't go to 100% of usage, but only at 30-45%. Looking at the processes I see Rgui.exe use between 0-23% and mysql-nt.exe use between 8-20% and so it is very slow. I am sure my cpu has no particular problems. Could you help me?

Thanks in advance
