ExtraSort Component for Integration Services improves on the
built-in sorting routine and enables smooth scaling to large data sets.
You gain the following benefits from ExtraSort:
New 6/19 v1.0.2 posted, it is 50% faster than previous build
and tested with files up to 30 GB.
Sort over 2 GB. Large data sets are handled successfully while the built-in sort routine
isn't suited to inputs larger than RAM (see graph).
Thousands of percent faster with >2 GB data sets. 300% faster for small ones.
Memory usage throttling in ExtraSort lets it coexist with other processes while
the built-in sort routine exhausts all RAM choking other apps.
strcmp/stricmp sort orders are available in ExtraSort. The built-in
sort routine for example can't fulfill
PennySort benchmark requirement due to lack of stricmp sort order.
Beta evaluation is available for download. Please send feedback,
it is very much appreciated.
