Indeed it's not an english word. I have to stop using it. In German it's used with the meaning of "runs fast". Even though it's already not that clearly defined there.

Thanks for the help on the topic of data aggregation. It helped a lot and I again learned somthing.
I have a performant  .. well .. fast running solution now.
