Building a Better Board Banner System Part I: Efficient Accuracy

Filed under: Database Tips, MOD Writing — Dave Rathbun @ 6:18 am Comments Off 

I recently rewrote my banner management system for one of my boards. The board is fairly active (in fact we’re averaging over 100,000 page views daily now) so with multiple page views per second taking place during the busiest times of the day it would make sense to be concerned about performance. And I was. :) But I also had to be concerned about auditing my banner and page statistics, and ensuring that if I said a banner was going to be displayed every 10 page views that it was. So the system had to be 100% efficient and just as accurate. That presented some challenges.
