Subject RE: datadump on big tables
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2003 14:34:55 GMT
I would suggest that write that code a bit differently to export large data to xml.  If you
look at that the source code, it appears to be doing select * from table and then returning
ALL of the results back to a QueryDataSet object...  That really should be written using Streams
to work effectivly.  I don't think anyone intended that to export a 1 gig table.  With the
implementation I saw, you will always run out of memory at some point.  If it was streamed,
you would only run out of disk space.

Subject: Re: datadump on big tables

Followup to this problem...

Apparently it does run directly in the ant process, no fork - OS X has 
issues allocating more than 212 megs to the jvm is seems.

Moved it to Sun JDK 1.4.1_02 on linux and allocated 1 gigs per process 
to the jvm and still ran out of memory. Profiling it - it uses the 
memory - 4 processes using as much memory as I will throw at it (1 gig 
per process in this case, 4 odd some gigabytes total memory usage) - 
which is off the charts of absurdity, the database isn't *that* big - a 
postgres dump (type c so pretty optimized, bzipping the dump only 
shaves off a few percent) is only 70 megs.

Is the data dumper significantly different in 3.1?
