CSVI Import
« on: December 09, 2014, 22:35:27 pm »

Is there a quicker way to speed up CSVI?

I have very large imports of 30,000 to 300,000 products to import each with an image stored on an external website. So it has to go to the website and download each image and create the thumbnail each time.

I recon it has taken at least 36 hours to import 30,000 products! I have a dedicated server and would like to speed this up if possible.

Thanks Simon Hodgkiss

Happy to help where I can.
