Topic: Pagination Scalability Revisited
I saw a few posts on the forum talking about pagination scalability concerns when it comes to tables with millions of records, especially in response to the article by Kevin Clark on "Things You Shouldn't Be Doing in Rails". A few people commented Kevin's article was vague about specifics and I agree. So, I would like to reopen this topic up for discussion. If anyone here has specific code examples to illustrate the scalability issues, please feel free to share. If the current paginator code is so bad, instead of moving it into a plugin, maybe someone could write a better one and more importantly explain why the new version is scalable.
