Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
Trying to weigh the advantages of Public vs Private download method. It seems like using a (rewritten)query string (private download method) would require more server resources than using a physical file path (public download method).
Is this correct?, or do I misunderstand how these things work?
I'm trying to troubleshoot massive CPU usage and MySQL errors on a site where it is not uncommon to have 1500 simultaneous connections to a page with 20+ images on it. Wondering if having "Download method" set to private could have something to do with it. (Caching enabled)
