A quick one today…
I also checked to see how fast the deletion would be with SSIS and Kingswaysoft. Used the following settings:
- VM about 5 ms from the Dynamics 365 instance (important that it not be too far, use an Azure VM for this)
- Used 64 threads
- Used Execute Multiple batching with 10 (cannot use more that 10 if you are using a lot of threads, ie more than 2)
- VM has 8 virtual cores and 32 GB memory
- Loading in batches of 2000. Only loading the id-column, as that is all that is needed.
With this setup, I got somewhere around 345 records deleted per second. Which is a tad more than 34x faster than the bulk delete.
So, want to delete a lot of stuff, maybe Bulk Delete is not the way to go. Not yet anyway, let’s hope Microsoft makes it faster!
