Problem with FirstOrDefault and SingleOrDefault RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      I have a problem with using FirstOfDefault and SingleOrDefault - it works very slowly ! I have about 50 000 users in db and I use that statement:

    var t = (from p in dataContext.UserInPodmiots                                            

    where p.UserID == (Guid)fbaUser.ProviderUserKey                                            

    select p).FirstOrDefault();

        FirstOrDefault works ok but very slow, because without that it works quickly. Problem is how to get First item of this IQuerable collection quickly ?

    Thanx for any help!

  • If you think your LINQ works slow then get the FirstorDefault record from your DB by using SQL StoredProcedure.

    LIKE SELECT TOP 1 FROM YOURTABLE .Please refer sql performance tuning before apply this.
