    tabprotosrv.exe process is using an extremely large amount of memory

    Kirby Wanner

      I am trying to create an fairly large extract (100+million rows) from a large MySql DB.  I am using the Tableau included connection for MySql and its included OBDC.  Creating the extract proceeds for 3-4 hours and ultimately fails after seemingly nearly finishing (this has happened now 4 times) with the tabprotosrv.exe process off the charts in resources and ending with "not responding".  One of the solutions presented in the support material is to modify the Prefetch count in the ODBC.  How would I do this with the included connection or should I be looking for a different solution?

       

      Thanks
