Rows Per Batch Vs. Maximum Insert Commit Size

This has to do with an OLE DB destination with the fast load data access method.

1. I have an intuition about what rows per batch means, but I've read that -1 is the default value -- which means simply that it hasn't been set.  In that case, how many rows are buffered into each batch?

2. What are the units for maximum insert commit size (bytes, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, ...)???

3. I'm working on a package for a large bulk load that has about a dozen concurrent data flow tasks, each of which uses the same OLE DB destination (well, a copy).  Of course I've disabled the destinations' table locks so these tasks don't deadlock.  Given that each of these data flows is writing several million pretty small rows, how should I set those options?  (The rows consist of 3 unique identifier columns plus a nvarchar(868) column that's usually less than 20 characters.)

I can't afford the time to experiment and benchmark various settings -- I just want a theoretical understanding of how these options interact, especially in this concurrent data flow scenario.

Thanks!

Maximum Insert Commit Size

 

Hi, All,

 

 if I set the "Maximum insert commit size"  to 10 ( 0 is the default) in a OLE destination,

what does the 10 means? 10 records or 10 MB/KB of data?


Thanks

OLE DB Destination - Fast Load With Maximum Insert Commit Size

I'm seeing some strange behavior from the OLE DB Destination when using the "fast load" access mode and setting the "Maximum insert commit size".

When I do not set the "Rows per batch" or the "Maximum insert commit size", the package I'm working with inserts 123,070 rows using a single "insert bulk" statement.  The data seems to flow through the pipeline until it gets to the OLE DB Destination and then I see a short pause.  I'm assuming the pause is from the "insert bulk" statement handling all of the rows at once.

When I set the "Rows per batch" option but leave the "Maximum insert commit size" alone, I generally see the same behavior -- a single "insert bulk" statement that handles all 123,070.  In this case, however, the "insert bulk" statement has a "ROWS_PER_BATCH" option appended to the statement that matches the "Rows per batch" setting.  This makes sense.  I'm assuming the "insert bulk" then "batches" the rows into multiple insert statements (although I'm unsure of how to confirm this).  This version of the "insert bulk" statement appears to run in about the same time as the case above.

When I set the "Maximum insert commit size" option and leave the "Rows per batch" statement alone, I see multiple "insert bulk" statements being executed, each handling the lower of either the value I specify for the "Maximum insert commit size" or the number of rows in a single buffer flowing through the pipeline.  In my testing, the number of rows in a buffer was 9,681.  So, if I set the "Maximum insert commit size" to 5,000, I see two "insert bulk" statements for each buffer that flows into the OLE DB Destination (one handling 5,000 rows and one handling 4,681 rows).  If I set the "Maximum insert commit size" to 10,000, I see a single "insert bulk" statement for each buffer that flows into the OLE DB Destination (handling 9,681 rows).

Now the problem.  When I set the "Maximum insert commit size" as described in the last case above, I see LONG pauses between buffers being handled by the OLE DB Destination.  For example, I might see one buffer of data flow through (and be handled by one or more "insert bulk" statements based on the "Maximum insert commit size" setting), then see a 2-3 minute pause before the next buffer of data is handled (with its one or more "insert bulk" statements being executed).  Then I might see a 4-5 minute pause before the next buffer of data is handled.  The pause between the buffers being passed through the OLE DB Destination (and handled via the "insert bulk" statements) is sometimes shorter, sometimes longer.

Using Profiler, I don't see any other activity going on within the database or within SQL Server itself that would explain the pauses between the buffers being handled by the OLE DB Destination and the resulting "insert bulk" statements...

Can anyone explain what is going on here?  Is setting the "Maximum insert commit size" a bad idea?  What are the differences between it and the "Rows per batch" setting and what are the recommended uses of these two options to try to improve the performance of the insert (particularly when handling millions of rows)?

TIA for any thoughts or information...

Recommendation For Max Insert Commit Size

The DBA is not around and I would like to see if someone had a good recommendation on what the Maximum insert commit size (MICS) should be for an OLE DB Destination where the default of ZERO is not being used.
 
I want to use Fast Load and I want to use Redirect Row to catch the errors.  I just performed a test where the OLE DB Destination was NOT set to Fast Load - it took FOREVER and I cannot have this kind of performance.
 
I know that this may be totally dependent on what is being inserted, but is there any problem with just setting this value to say 800,000? -.
 
The destination SQL database's recovery mode is set to SIMPLE as it is not a transactional database.
 
Suggestions??  Thx

Replication Row Commit Size

Is there a way to get replication to commit records in batches instead of all at once??  I am in a 24/7 shop and some of my updates end up being thousands of rows and it locks the subscriber table for a few minutes sometimes. If I could get it to commit say every 1000 rows it might give me some relief in this area..

Or am I thinking about this wrong?? If this is possible, would it help at all...

How To Commit At Each N Rows

HI, I try to commit 100 000 rows in a single batch. Using an OLEDB adapter and fast load option into SQL Server, even though I set the rows per batch to 100000 and the max insert commit size to 100000, it seems that SSIS does not commit 100 000 rows at a time, it commits rows randomly at something 2000 to 5000 rows at a time.

Is there a way to tells SSIS to commit rows at a fixed number of rows?

Thank you,

Maximum Table Size?

Hello,

Does anyone knows what the maximum table size is?
I'm asking this because I have a feeling that dbcc newalloc and dbcc checktable report more often errors on larger tables.
Just recently I received an error 2529 on a table with over 17 million rows and about 3.9 GB large.

Thanks,

Maximum Possible Database Size

I posted this in another area and didn't get an answer, so maybe I posted it in the wrong place.  Forgive me if you've seen this twice.
 

I'm trying to figure out what the ultimate size limitation for a SQL 2005 Enterprise server is.  This document is helpful but I'm a bit confused:
 
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143432.aspx
 
In the document, it says that the maximum database size is 524,258 terabytes; however, it also says that the maximum data file size--which I assume is the .MDF file--is 16 terabytes.  My question is, how can you create a 524,258 TB database if the maximum file size 16 TB?
 
Dumb question, I'm sure...please enlighten me!

Replication Maximum Buffer Size

Hi,

I'd like to replicate an SQL Server Database to an SDF file. For Simplicity I want to use the SQL Server 2005 Management Console. The Console reports that the maximum buffer size were to small. In the comment (c# code) I can see it is set to 512. How can I increase the value in the replication assistant?

other is in the product datasheet  there is a information that this version supports databases up to 4 GB.

 

Could you tell me what is the correct answer?

Performance Issues And Tuning (Rows Per Batch, MICS, Etc.)

I built an SSIS package to pull a large amount data (over 4 million records) from our legacy system into a SQL server for analysis.  As it stands the package takes somethign like 30+ hours to run.  I would really like to trim down the time it is taking.  The process runs monthly.
 
We're connecting to a cache database via an ODBC connection and dumping to an OLEDB connection to the SQL server.  Is there something I can change in the rows per batch, maximum commit size to improve performance.  It looks like the ODBC connection returns chunks of about 3000 rows at a time.
 
Is anyone familiar with cache that might know where I can get the best performing ODBC driver from?
 
What about the table that I'm dumping the data to?  I assume no (or very few) indexes is the way to go for speed of dropping the data into the table.
 
I don't feel that 30 hours is an acceptable amount of time for this process to run.  Am I off base here?
 
Any tips would be appreciated.

Trigger : Insert Maximum Primary ID

Hi,

via VBScript, I am inserting data into one table as below:
Code:

conn.Source = "INSERT INTO img (imageDesc,imageName,imageDate,imageUser,imageIP) VALUES ('"& ni &"','"& fn &"','"& Now() &"',"& Session("MM_UserID") &",'"& Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_HOST") &"')"

In another table, I want to insert the primary key (imageID) of this newly inserted row into a new table called "t_image_Site" along with another value in another column.

Any advice/tutorials... this can be done with a trigger if I'm not mistaken?
