Hi all, I've been developing a GoogleCal app for a month or so in my spare time. I've ended up with a shed full of session variables, just so I can keep all the data alive and create an import file for GoogleCal at the end of the process. I purposely didn't use a DB as I thought I could get it all done with session vars. I had no idea that the 'simple' app would bloat and become rather unwieldy wrt storage. Although 'DB-ing' the app would streamline it, I'm unsure about performance. Currently, the session data is stored as a multidimensional (with a possible 1000 pieces of data - mainly integers and small strings).
Would the strain on the webserver (using sessions) affect performance to a greater extent than making greater demands on the db server? I would welcome any insights wrt this. Thanks.
