Just to elaborate a bit on what Tom wrote, we are harvesting EAD 
records. I've done a bit of comparison, making OAI requests for the same 
records on 2.8.1 and 3.2. A record on 2.8.1 that took about 10 seconds , 
took about 3 minutes on 3.2. A record that took about 3 minutes to 
respond on 2.8.1 timed out on 3.2 after 20 minutes with an "Internal 
Server Error" message.
