Customer import is too slow

Hi all, 

 

So I've written a script to import customer records from csv files but the import is too slow. I've over a million records which need to be imported into magento but I can't find a fastest way of doing so. 

 

The code snippet is below: 

 

                   $importModel = Mage::getModel('importexport/import');
                    /** @var $importModel Mage_ImportExport_Model_Import */
                    $importModel->setEntity('customer'); 
                    $importModel->validateSource($fileInfo->getPathname());
                    $importModel->importSource();
                    $importModel->invalidateIndex();

Any help is highly appreciated.

Re: Customer import is too slow

If the magento import process isn't fast enough, I would probably work out how to do it with direct mysql queries (with care!)

Thanks @Tom Robertshaw

 

I ended up extending some functions of fastcsv import extension and everything was smooth afterwards Smiley Happy
