Subject RE: Joins and performance
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 14:14:52 GMT
If this is a frequent/heavily used query, another way to deal with 
this is to create a view and a matching Torque object.  There is 
a table option that suppresses the SQL generation.  You can then
just use the Peer/Record object as like it was a normal table.

Note you may want to pay close attention to the indices requirements
of the underlying table.  If commonly used columns in a large join
are not index, it can be a BIG performance hit.
