A question of taxation
Posted 12 May 2003 - 06:09 PM
Is it LESS taxing for my server to store all the \"name\" Value\" data in a file or place variable that link to the Name and Value to the db?
in other words. I will not be changing this info much at all and the file will be accessed a LOT. Should I place the Name and Values in my db or leave them in the <form> as is?
Thanks for the help:

In general small tables like these should be cached by the database, and retrieval is as close to instantaneous as the database can be. There are many different things that can become a bottleneck in an application, and I\'ve found it\'s best to create the system first, then tune around the bottlenecks, rather than to assume you know what the bottlenecks will be and start making design decisions based around those assumptions.

Do you have any good book references on MYSQL tuning and optimizing?
