[OAI-implementers] Server Load for ListIdentifiers, ListRecords calls

I am thinking of implementing OAI, but am a little wary of the load
requirements of ListIdentifiers and ListRecords for large document
repositories.  One, there is the bandwidth requirement of transferring huge
blocks of data.  Two, the process would have to go through each record in
the database and check the TimeModified/Set attributes.

How are people dealing with this issue?
