Speeding up load times of the User Admin pages

I'm running a large multisite with approx 10,000 users - more will be added each year.

The network admin user page takes ages to load (/wp-admin/network/users.php). Is there anything I can do (plugins perhaps?) to speed up page load? I don't know if the multi DB would help with this as the users tables is only one table:
https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/multi-db/

Also - on a related note I find it REALLY hard to search for users as the default user search doesn't filter by username (login) which is how I identify people. Any solution to this?

many thanks,

Alex Furr

    Other than optimizing your server no, I can't think of anything that would help! If you're using apache on your server I would really advise you to switch to nginx instead.

    No, the multi-db plugin won't help either.

    That's weird... I can search for users just fine using their usernames!!
    Are you talking about searching from the frontend, or from wp-admin?

    Please advise,
