Maximum Number of records that can be uploaded into salesforce using data loader CLI

Hi all,


Any body know what is the maximum number of records that can be inserted or deleted using batch upload/delete of data using command line.




From Dataloader User Guide.


Field: Batch Size


Description: In a single insert, update, upsert, or delete operation, records moving to or from Salesforce are processed in increments of this size. The maximum value is 200. We recommend a value between 50 and 100.
The maximum value is 10,000 if the Use Bulk API option is selected.



Hope this helps.


Recommended maxiumum number of records to use with the Data laoder is 5 million. the data loader will chunk this up into batches as needed.


Thanks for the info guys
