I have developed a simple resource that queries my database and writes some of the value into a html page.  The following is what happens ( I have attached the debug filter to the resource ):

 No, it's not supposed to be so slow, I have some ssi resources used to make 
 tests, one of them queries a database (msql) three times in the same document
 and display the result. A call to this resource (local call) take almost 2 or 
 3 secondes. 
 It seems that something else is responsible of that, I don't know what.
