Is your Import/Export hanging with please wait?

We’ve been working with some large data sets and we noticed that once the number of product SKU’s reached a certain point although the import process was working (items appeared under manage products) the import itself would not complete with a success message.

One potential cause for this the script for monitoring the import progress is running out of memory due to the sheer number of items being imported. Increase your memory (we went for 2GB on our dedicated server) and you should find the import process completing with 100k+ rows in your csv.
