Re: predicting performance of sql loading a 400 GB file

I concur, in fact a relatively common question on various forums goes like
this

"I have a batch process that loads X million records into a table. At first
it goes really fast with the first Y thousand records loading in seconds. As
it progresses the load goes slower and slower, what's happening?"
