There is the famous saying

> There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things.

Maintaining precomputed agg results falls under the first, so use it only after you exhausted all other (acceptable) options.

If you only have ~20k records you can probably get away with calculating aggregations on the fly with some query optimization for a while longer. This is, after all, what RDBMSs do best.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
