Only 1 core in use during XML import
FM9 Advanced Pro imports 16 million datasets out of 6500 xml files within 3 days on an old G5 Mac. Now with an 8 core Mac OSX10.6 it uses only one core and it will take much more time. I tried already to run this task on a dual core PC with WindowsXPSP2, but that configuration crashes after 1 day... and the file does not open anymore after the crash ;-(
I have to run this once a year, too bad that I sold my old G5.
"but that configuration crashes after 1 day..."
I'd check out the file that's importing the data for possible file corruption that is present before you've started importing. I've seen cases where one version of Filemaker or one OS platform tolerates file corruption where the other doesn't.
