    Default How costly is the FSO?

    Hello there. On my site, I try to keep track of the number of users, the number of groups, and the number of a few other things. These are all displayed on the home page of the site. So my question is this: should I keep track of these numbers by reading & writing to files, by using the Application collection, or by some other means? Currently, I don't think that I've got enough traffic to have it make a whole lot of difference. Of course I hope this isn't always the case. Any insight would be appreciated.

    file system operations are pretty well optimised, but you'll start to have problems as traffic increases because there's no locking model. that's where a decent database will come into it's own - not on speed, but on consistency. App vars are pretty versatile, since they *do* have a locking model, but it'll slow your site incrementally.
