I don't know any of such, but there is no magic pill to just make
things faster. Performance almost always is a question about
tradeoffs. But before tuning anything, you need to measure things and
find out which causes bottlenecks. And only after that you should
start to think about any tunings and optimizations accounting
tradeoffs they bringing on the table. Premature optimization is the
root of all evils (:
