Optimization for updating "last_request_at"

Reported by Georg Ledermann | November 10th, 2008 @ 09:26 AM

Currently, the field "last_request_at" is updated on every single request. What do you think about some kind of optimization by adding a latency time?

Example: Update the "last_request_at" only if the last update is more than 2 minutes ago. The 2 minutes should be a config option.

This would prevent lots of updates to the database if a user produces a lot of requests in a short time.

Of course, with this feature the value "last_request_at" gets a little bit vague, but I don't think this matters. People who don't like this may set the config option to 0.minutes, which would be the current behaviour (means updating the timestamp on every single request).
