Mysql optimization

The following is my.cnf config for MySQL 5.5.16.
I have 16 gb ram on a Linux CentOS server.
Can someone suggest tweaks to my file please?
I see I have a mix of InnoDB and MyISAM tables.  I have some pretty big tables mixed in with some smaller.  Biggest is over a million records.
I'm sure I need improvements.
Thanks!

tmpdir = /run/mysqld

key_buffer = 819M
max_allowed_packet = 16M
table_cache = 512
sort_buffer_size = 16M
read_buffer_size = 8M
read_rnd_buffer_size = 16M
myisam_sort_buffer_size = 64M
thread_cache_size = 8
query_cache_size = 32M
#innodb_buffer_pool_size = 384M
#innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 1

thread_concurrency = 8

log-bin=mysql-bin

log_slow_queries       = /var/log/mysql/mysql-slow.log
long_query_time = 2
log-queries-not-using-indexes

server-id	= 1

[mysqldump]

Difficult to say without knowing your application but ...
try to set innodb_buffer_pool_size=3072M if you can afford or 2048M if you cant. Also set innodb_thread_concurrency=16 (verify this with your processor cores possibility)
which is the main thing you can do.
Also key_buffer could be larger maybe try 1024M
thread_cache_size=50
query_cache_size=256M
query_cache_limit=5M

join_buffer_size=8M
tmp_table_size=64M
max_heap_table_size=64M

also check if you could need :
bulk_insert_buffer_size=???? (64M)
myisam_sort_buffer_size=???? (128M)


Try to see if you get better performances by applying things 1 by 1.

I guess my first question would be "why do you think you need to make changes?"  Usually there would be a symptom that would trigger a concern.  Are there web script files that are running too slowly or other indicators that might be helpful?

Well, I have had too many users for one...then I've had some large queries create issues so I wanted to verify the config first.  As a first step.

some large queries create issues
There's an article from one of our colleagues here at E-E that may be helpful.  I think I would look at the queries as the first step, since the standard installation works pretty well for most people.

This helped, though it wasn't the resolution.  It did lead to the answer though.
