Data Import Tools - Large Database

So I am importing a csv file that is about 2GB large with approximately 8 million regards using Toad and got the following error:

Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.
Stack Trace:
   at System.Text.RegularExpressions.RegexRunner.DoubleTrack()

What do you think caused this?
What other alternatives are out there for a database of this magnitude?

I should note that mysql is hosted on windows.

you ran out of memory :slight_smile:

break your csv up into chunks

Good advice!

I think that is the best practice moving forward to keep me from getting more gray hairs. I was ultimately able to do it using navicat.
My system has an i7 9300processor and 6GB DDR3 RAM. I think Navicat handled the memory much more efficiently. :slight_smile:
