Contact list of 75k entries
« on: July 09, 2010, 12:12:30 AM »
Hello again,
 I have to import the list of contacts my customer has so I plan to make an sql script to put them all in the data base. Anyone has experience with this and knows if such a big list will slow down GAD?

Thank you,
Mihai

Well, it all depends on how you will implement it but my instant answer is ... why???

It should significantly slow down GAD.

Hi Mihai,

75k contacts isn't too much. I worked for a customer having over 4 millions contacts in UCS database and size of UCS databases (Main + Archive) was over 2TB (yes, two terabytes)  :)

Back to yr question - I did something very similar in the past and SQL script is the fastest way as it will take forever using Contacts Platform SDK. As I wrote 75k contacts should not impact GAD during normal operations. Of course, contact search will take longer.

There is one very important thing - it is necessary to rebuild indexes after the import is done and maintain the indexes regularly.

R.
