Are too many database calls reducing your application performance?

Struggling with database performance issues - Too many database calls

Reference – Swiss Computerworld


The problem we see the most are too many database queries per request/transaction. There are 3 specific phenomena to witness

More data is requested is than actually required in the context of the current transaction, e.g.: requesting all account information instead of those that we need to display on the current screen.

The same data is requested multiple times. This usually happens when different components involved in the same transaction act independently from one another and each requests the same set of data. It is unknown what type of data has already been loaded in the current context so we end up with the same queries multiple times.

Multiple queries are executed to retrieve a certain set of data. This is often a result of not taking full advantage of complex SQL statements or stored procedures to retrieve the data in one batch.
