    System performance impact due to Hierarchies
    System performance impact due to Hierarchies


    Is there any impact on system performance if we have multiple hierarchies defined ?

    We would like to know from design decision perspective if we should be having multiple hierarchies and its impact on the system performance. Are there any other impact of having multiple hierarchies ?

    Thanks !

      Hi Tausif,

      I don't know about performance impact, the there certainly be a maintenance overhead. It is not easy to deal with hierarchies. Modify them can be time consuming and at times tedious. Just something to keep in mind in making your design decisions.
