Improving data flow performance with SSIS DefaultBufferMaxRows property

Hi Everyone

Its been longtime I posted any blog, so finally got time to share something very useful. Recently while working on Data Flow task performance optimization, I found how easily we can change the default property and see some very fast outcomes.

Usually we have to use lot of  trail and error mechanism while configuring the data flow task properties.

The easiest way is to just change the DefaultBufferMaxRows to 1000 from default value of 10000 under Data flow task properties.

In this approach, the buffer gets occupied properly and the package will not halt and will continue to load the records.

Feel free to share your feedback and comments if this is helpful.
