Database for photos?

Is there a database program that plays nicely with Lightroom?

I currently use Lightroom for organizing photos into location and species, and a spreadsheet for keeping track of other information. But, at over 100,000 photos, Lightroom is struggling - it freezes up several times in the course of a session.

I want to start generating flights data for moths, i.e. tracking all occurrence dates, and neither of them work well for that.

What I would love is something that could extract dates and species ID # from Lightroom metadata. What I will probably have to settle for is manually (arrgghhh!!) entering all that data for species of interest.

Any ideas? What programs are y’all using for data management?

Most recent thread at Adobe about it and several apps that might fit the bill of exporting the metadata.
