  • Dot Folders Question

    Curiosity question: In the Admin Control Panel, it states that using dot folders could be "resource intensive" where the option to use them is listed. I was just wondering why it would be resource intensive and is there a way to gauge how much so?

    Usage of the dot folders adds a SQL join to the query that displays the threads on forumdisplay. The only way to guage their effect is to try them both on and off over a period of time. In v2.1 we will change the way they function behind the scenes in attempt to make them add no resources whatsoever but you may find that turning them on now adds no noticeable load to your server. The warning is just there to let you know that load could go up.
