I have one application in c++ and i'm using the C++ Mysql Connector (https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/cpp/)

I need to save some logs inside one table.Depending on the times I may have large amounts of data on the order of thousands (for example, 80,000).

I already implement a function that iterate my std::vector and save the std::string to my database.

For example:

std::vector<std::string> lines = explode(filedata, '\n');
for (int i = 0; i < lines.size(); i++)
   std::vector<std::string> elements = explode(lines[i], ';');
   ui64 timestamp = strtol(elements.at(0).c_str(), 0, 10);
   std::string pointId = elements.at(6);
   std::string pointName = elements.at(5);
   std::string data = elements.at(3);

   database->SetLogs(timestamp, pointId, pointName, data);

The logs come from csv file, i save all fields to my vector. After this i parse the vector (with explode) and get only the fields that i need to save.

But i have a problem. If i have e.g 80,000 i'm calling my function to save in database 80,000. It works and save correctly all data but it takes a lot of time.

Exists some way to save all data only calling one time the function to save without calling e.g 80,000 and thus optimize the time?

    Welcome to Code Review! You'll receive better reviews if you show a complete example. For example, I recommend that you edit to show the necessary #include lines, and a main() that shows how to call your function. It's not mandatory, but it really helps! – Toby Speight Sep 5 '17 at 10:41
  • I feel this question is more suited for stackoverflow... Anyway, you may try MySQL BULK INSERT, possibly with no need to write a program: BULK INSERT db.table FROM 'log.csv' WITH FIELDTERMINATOR = ',' – sorush-r Sep 6 '17 at 7:35
