I did find a document talking about Mhonarc performance at:


Probably the first tip, breaking up the large archives into smaller ones, would 
give the most bang for the buck, since:

"MHonArc performance degrades as an archive gets larger."

and some of the archives are quite large. Every time a new email arrives, many 
old pages need to be updated. The GA list archive was broken up in the 
past....using something like "mharc" to do it systematically with all the 
archives might improve things, without causing extra server load.

They seem to use that for Mhonarc's own mailing list archives, and they look 
pretty good!
