  • 1 extra SELECT query per thread page request when the user has more than zero active alerts.

Alert Summerization Performance impact

On accessing alerts above the summerize threshold, fetches all unread alerts and attempts to group them in PHP. On successfully generating summary alerts, 2 queries are done. 1 insert to add the summary alert, 1 updating summerized alerts.
