Subject Re: Slow Return on Paginated SelectQuery
Date Mon, 13 Apr 2009 00:52:37 GMT
Cayenne has to fetch the primary keys of your ~683k records first,
which is why it is taking so long.  After that, it will use the PKs to
fetch all the records for each page (50 at a time in your case) you
access.  Eventually you'll have all ~683k in memory (if you have
enough memory).  This will be horribly inefficient.  You should try to
find a way to divide your data set up into smaller chunks that you can
