Quick Import fails when importing a large number of rows.

+1 vote

When using "Quick import" for a large number of spreadsheet rows (over 10000 or so), we're getting "Internal Server Error" and only the first 10k (or so, a variable amount) get loaded.

Is there a setting we can adjust to allow for more records to be uploaded per batch?

There are two options to increase the number of rows that dbFront's Quick-Import functionality can handle.

Option 1: Increase the thread execution timeout.

By default, the thread execution timeout is set to 110 seconds for Dotnet applications.
​​
You can adjust the thread timeout by merging the following into the file [c:\inetpub\dbFront\web.config].

​<system.web>
    <httpRuntime executionTimeout="180" />
</system.web>

Option 2: Allocate more resources.

Because this is a VM, one of the easiest ways to boost the performance is to allocate more memory or additional processors.

​Can you verify that you have at least two CPUs and 8 gigs of memory allocated to this VM?

Newer versions of dbFront include that information in the server statistics but your version is a bit older.

​This affects how much dbFront can process in the allocated time.
