I don't think that "let them buy faster hardware" would solve
this problem. These days that usually means adding more
memory and more processors, which don't help at all when
the problem is contention for a lock.
Nonsense. Faster processing means lock hold times are reduced which
in greater throughput. It absolutely makes a huge difference.
I also take exception to the idea that performance is a
luxury. Engineers do things routinely with a fast change
control system that they wouldn't even try with slow one.
Providing a responsive server gives my developers the ability
to understand ongoing changes more fully and to build better
Nobody says performance doesn't matter. What we are saying is some of
us are willing to trade a little performance for more functionality and
we'd like a way to do that. Of course, *you* don't have to make the
trade. But it would be nice if people who needed it could do it.
So I don't follow your objection at all. If not installing a trigger
doesn't impact performance, but installing one is possible - what have
