SQL Server Insert snap really slow

I’m writing ~ 200M records into a SQL DB but at the current rate (56,000 records over 2 hrs) I’ll be here a long time before it finishes. Wondering if I’m missing something in the setup or if there is something that needs to be tweaked elsewhere.

Hi @msalter,

You can read about SQL Server - Bulk Load snap. There is documentation of the snap.

Hi @msalter - You may want to try using the -b batch_size argument.

SQL Server bulk load - support for bpc -b batch_size argument

Thanks for the help. I totally missed that snap in the list. We’re writing @ ~ 4.5M records every 10 min or so. This was a big help!

Quick edit - 25M records every 1/2hr
