There is a table 'votescount' which is being updated every time a user vote.
I need to display three rows with maximum votes.
Now the problem is If the users are less in number and less frequent to update, a trigger will be better to extract the rows, otherwise, if users are more frequently voting, an event will be better.
So, is there a lightweight solution in between to solve the problem?
I'll prefer to write the results in a file because it will be faster to access from php.
