KB-3033: Impact on DA performance when having small sessions vs one single session

Centrify DirectAudit ,  

12 April,16 at 11:09 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectAudit
 
Question:
 
Is there a performance difference between having thousands of small sessions, versus having one single session with multiple commands in it? 

 
Answer:
 
Yes, there is a little overhead in having multiple small sessions compared to a single session with multiple commands. 
 
The main reason being each session having its unique record in session table. Hence, multiple sessions result in multiple database inserts and updates. 
 
But even in such cases, the performance should be at least acceptable.
