    I am using Azure Mobile Services and logging URL selections as they are made:

    Q: if I want to get a total of clicks by particular URL would it be cheaper to

    a: Just log all clicks and take the hit on storage (& calculate totals as needed)

    b: Use a trigger to update a running total per URL

    Lets say for argument that there are 10,000 unique URLS and that generally 5% are hit more than once per day (24 hours)

    Is this a reasonable question to ask?  is there an easy way that I can answer the question myself?

    Thanks for your time! 

  • Question, Using the scale out method do the VM's automaticly start load balancing?

  • @11111111: Yes. Your customers access your services via endpoints, and traffic will be distribute across your roles in a round-robin fashion.
