Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an application built with Node.js which uses the Facebook Graph API, and it stores likes and friends' relations in MongoDB (array of Facebook IDs).

I also have to store the names, and images links of various pages and users in MongoDB, so I literally have to make thousands of requests to Graph API.

Is making a large number of requests from an already busy server a good practice? Should I set up another node instance for this and use dnode or some RPC servrice for this purpose?

How are requests to APIs from a server generally made?
