Fast Mass Load

Folks:

How fast is Fast Mass Loader which ships with Tamino ?

If I want to load 10MB document and use two different approaches to load documents into Tamion

a. using xmlload through java client api
b. using Fast Mass Loader

Can I expect substantial difference ? or, Fast Mass loader is really useful if the document exceeds a certain size ??

Any thoughts ??

The “fast” mass loader is faster than going through any of the APIs but I don’t have any performance numbers. The reason it is faster is that is updates the collection internally and to do this it locks the collection so it has complete control of it.

Stuart:

How about ths size ? Can Fast Mass Loader load larger documents than any other API ?

Also, is there a notion of maximum size of document that could be handled by Tamino database, assuming my client machine doesn’t have any physical memory constraints ?

Thanks,
