    At Qwest we had a snapshot of the production database for people to run reports off of. It had a few limitations (you couldn't snap some of the larger field types), but it worked pretty well.

    Also, with Oracle you can set IO limits on a per account basis, so queries like the one you mention would simply timeout after a while.

    Does MySQL provide such features?
