Question: Why do I have very slow inserts of numerous records using Firebird (I have several hundred thousands of records)?
Answer: Please donít use TpFIBDataset, because this is a buffered dataset. You will also have memory problems with TpFIBDataset. Use pFIBQuery with parameterized inserts instead. A commit after 500 should be ok. We made a text-import component and are able to put 100.000 records in 4 seconds with this approach.
  • Try set : TpFibDataset.Unidirectional:=true; before open.
  • Try Use TpFibQuery
  • If on local PC use the local connection

Waaaaw, what a difference in support with IBO, most of the time when I asked something there, I got a arrogant answer. This is really great and I must say, there is a significant difference in speed that FIBPlus is faster! >>
