I created couple of views that show post counts of different post types. I have the feeling they are causing additional server overhead, especially on some pages the views are shown in more than one spot, eg hidden link — scroll to bottom, under "Number of tourist targeted scams exposed" and also within the text the footer.

I wonder if there is a way for me to tell the view to run the query only after xx mins instead of every page load?

Hi, Views caching doesn't work exactly like that, where you can specify the cache time. You can see the criteria for Views caching explained here: https://toolset.com/documentation/user-guides/front-page-filters/how-to-use-views-parametric-search-on-large-sites/
One way to help reduce that server overhead may be to use a 3rd-party caching plugin. Some of those plugins create static HTML pages periodically, and serve them up instead of querying the database over and over. That will effectively lower your number of database queries, but also might cause some delays before new information is shown on the site. Something to keep in mind.

Thank you Christian. I understand now.
