( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Most excellent advice from everyone :) I love this place :)

The site when originally developed started with MSSQL7, and has since migrated to MSSQL2K. While I wasn't too impressed with early incarnations of the product, I do have to admit that it's getting better. Would still love to try on Oracle sometime. . . but I digress.

Following one suggestion, we tweaked the indexes on the master name table. We have been able to squeeze some more performance out of the initial name search, and are starting to look at the rest of your suggestions on how to best cache and redisplay the results of user queries.

Currently, the data set grows once a week by several thousand names, but will likely be updated on a daily basis in the not-so-distant future. Being more forward-thinking this time, we're going to plan for daily updates NOW so something like this doesn't bite us in the rear again ;)

Thank you all for the time and effort of responding to this. If my little bit of additional information adds to/changes any suggestions, I'd love to hear those as well.

Respectfully (and thankfully!) yours,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
