Our ExpressionEngine content manangement site on RackSpace is timeing out on queries. The offending query appears to be :

 "SELECT  t.entry_id, t.channel_id, t.forum_topic_id, t.author_id, t.ip_address, t.title, t.url_title, t.status, t.dst_enabled, t.view_count_one, t.view_count_two,
t.view_count_three, t.view_count_four,"..., 8192) = 1351 <0.003584>
10:15:05 flock(5, LOCK_UN

To me this started as a gradual slowdown that came to a grinding halt. So my suspicion is either a space issue or balooning database records causing the timeouts. I am new to ExpressionEngine, but am comfortable troubleshooting MySQL. What kind of things should I look for to figure out what has slowed down the query? Help!
