--------------------------------------------------

  
  It would be quite hard to give out any numbers that make much sense. From the architecture
point of view, a view on a table is much like a (multi-column) index on a table in an RDBMS
that just performs a quick look-up. So this theoretically should be pretty quick.
  
- The major advantage of the architecture is, however, that it is designed for high traffic.
No locking occurs is the storage module (MVCC and all that) allowing any number of parallel
readers as well as serialized writes. With replication, you can even set up multiple machines
for a horizontal scale-out and data partitioning (in the future) will let you cope with huge
volumes of data. (See [[http://jan.prima.de/~jan/plok/archives/72-Some-Context.html|slide
13 of Jan Lehnardt's essay]] for more on the storage module or the whole post for detailed
info in general).
