Oh, and I forgot to mention, under the "other, less direct ways" that binds improve performance...

Because of the fact that the RDBMS maintains a cache by sql-text... the more distinct sql that you pipe into your database, the bigger this cache has to be. (In oracle, you can investigate this cache by querying the v$sqlarea system view.) As this cache grows bigger, its hash buckets spill over, it consumes valuable shared pool memory, and various other Bad Things occur.

Many people new to database development (and not using bound values), eventually hit a wall where their database seems to fall apart because of these problems. This is perhaps one of the least well understood causes of RDBMSs failing to scale.

Anyway, just one more piece of fuel for the "use binds" fire.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
