Out of curiosity, does anyone know what the maximum limit that silverstripe can handle in terms of data? Basically when is the amount of data gets too big and silverstripe can't handle it.
For example: if I have 10k records, will it be wiser to use DataObject instead of SiteTree
That entirely depends on your memory limit, actually
It's not related to SilverStripe, it's more related to how much your PHP setup can handle
SilverStripe will always be as fast as possible, but sometimes, you need to clean up a bit manually
Using SiteTree over DataObject puts maybe 3kb of extra memory overhead into your server
If you have a few thousand records, thta can add up, of course
FWIW, I have projects with hundreds of thousands of records in DataObjects
They do grind a bit sometimes when you're running queries
@null - Sorry, I meant tabs within a page i.e. those created with $fields->addFieldsToTab( ... )
Oooh. Good question, I'm not sure!
