It seems it does.
I did some measurements with DBD::Gofer which is network serialisation
layer which can introduce local cache with:
This pass SQL query to original database, but cache queries in memory,
just like MySQL query cache does.
This has performance impact on generated search page:
2.952961 s page load time and 0.713 s of DBI time to
3.709371 s page load time and 1.634 s of DBI time
This are plack numbers, but are useful for estimating performance
implact of Gofer itself. It roughly doubles number of perl statements
execuited in NYTProf.
And now numbers from caching layer: we issue 1674 queries of which 927 are
unique. That means we are generating double traffic to database so using
local caching via DBD::Gofer (which is part of standard DBI install,
BTW) might buy you some performance.
There are some low-hanging fruit to pick here, I think :-)
