I have a .net console app
Currently, I'm inserting into 1 table and using a trigger on that one table to insert into another
....a long story short, Its causing me a debug headache, so i'm looking to insert into both tables directly from the Console app

Back in the olden days, the most efficient way was to write a stored procedure and insert this way, however, i'm not sure this the case any more????
Can i simply write a "insert into blah" directly in .net code and it be just as quick?
I'm handling potentially hundreds of inserts every second/few seconds, so it needs to be ultra quick and efficient

I've never used LINQ, but it its going to be a massive performance increase then i will learn it
if anyone can shed any light on this it would be helpful

still the best way

>Can i simply write a "insert into blah" directly in .net code and it be just as quick?
it will not have the same speed, as the sql entine has then for "each call", check the sql (compile, check permissions etc)
with a stored procedure, the code is pre-compiled etc, and a single procedure call will also reduce the network traffic as only the small data has to go over the network and not the full sql...


LINQ will just add another layer to the code, and should be avoided in my opinion
