Module Settings -- Best Way to fetch them?

I have a forum Module and there are settings for various functionalities (Title, forum on/offline et al). I need to check it and behave accordingly. options I can see so far are:

  1. Make AR object and fetch them everytime – Easiest but not sure how does it affect perfomance for let say 100 000 people accessing at same time

  2. Store AR in session – Problematic when changes. Also I don’t think its good idea to store AR object in session

What is best method, on your opinion, to store such settings (mentioned here or unmentioned)



No one? :bump:

I’d store such settings in PHP files with arrays inside.
