Deployment (Not Responding)

Over the last week I've tried to run a data comparison between two databases on two different servers - sometimes it completes, other times it becomes non-responsive and my memory/cpu usage is through the roof. Other times, I get the comparison to finalize, but the deployment becomes "not responding" with high memory/cpu usage, finally I tried just saving the deployment script and executing from SSMS, but just trying to save the script would turn into "not responding" with high memory/cpu usage.

I have a brand new Windows 10 machine with a 500GB hard drive and 16 GB of RAM. I wouldn't expect this to be a problem.

Any thoughts on how to get my data deployed?

    Hey Webrageous,

    Thanks for contacting us and sorry you are having this issue!
    It depends on how much data you are comparing/deploying - if you watch the amount of disk space it takes up you can see whether that is a limiting factor, or perhaps you are on an older version of SQL Data Compare that is not 64 bit (I recommend using the latest version- v12).

    Here is some more info on improving performance http://documentation.red-gate.com/display/SDC12/Getting+better+performance+out+of+SQL+Data+Compare

    Also if the script is large enough to have issues deploying with SQL Data Compare - you probably will not be able to deploy it using SSMS - it is still 32 bit so it cannot handle large scripts (most text editors cannot handle very large scripts actually).

    I hope that helps!

    Warm Regards,
