Hello all,
I have an enterprise application that needs to be optimized/re- engineered. In the process of re-designing the framework, i stumbled across the idea of storing large mysql result sets in multi- dimensional arrays for easy/quick reference.

Basically, my application polls the database looking for 1 of up to 3 documents for each day in the reporting period (1 to 4 weeks) for multiple clients, and follows a complex hierarchy based on the document and related information returned. One of the areas i imagine i am losing resources is in the queries sent to the database where no result is returned.

My idea involves grabbing all of each document within the reporting period, and storing each type in its own multi-dimensional array with all other documents of the same type. Then, throughout the report, i would check array keys for results instead of querying the database. It sounds like a sensible solution for taking some of the 20000+ queries of each report, but i'm not sure if the gains would be offset by the demands on RAM due to the large arrays.
