Im using curl connection ang inserting data into catalog, but I find out problem in my writed function CatalogData(). Im inserting ProductGroup() and Product() objects, memory usage looks good (can insert up to ~2 000 inserts and memony usage about 32MB), but then Im trying write ProductSpecification() its Product has many relation. Thats one cycle takes ~3mb memory usage and I cant find out how frees memory, thats happen whet I using write function....

Okey Im testing object insertation. Here memory usage when executing only controler and writing ProductGroup() 726 objects:

-[ 21.763416MB iteration start
-[ 71.006488MB iteration end

-[ 71.0268MB iteration start
-[ 77.80532MB niteration end

-[ 77.826208MB iteration start
-[ 79.442648MB iteration end

-[ 79.4634MB iteration start
-[ 93.414464MB iteration end

-[ 93.434848MB iteration start
-[ 95.415392MB iteration end

-[ 95.436168MB iteration start
-[ 95.559544MB iteration end

-[ 95.58028MB iteration start
-[ 95.604808MB iteration end

-[ 95.625592MB iteration start
-[ 96.061632MB iteration end

Maybe have some ideas how to frees used memory back....?

I think the easiest solution would be to break up your inserts (or just use plain SQL and mysql from the CLI).

If you have 5000 entries and you can enter 1000 at a time, break the data up into 5 pieces.

Its hard to give you any advice without having reproducible code - I don't know what your CatalogData() method does, so can't say anything about its memory usage.

problem is here:
$data - count ~ 10 000 entries. I use simple ecommerce module. I thinking write method searching is changed fields or something else.... When I debuging i see memory usage increasing by cycle iterations...

foreach ($data as $item) {
    $catalog = new ProductGroup();
    $catalog->Title = $item['title'];
    $catalog->writeToStage ( 'Stage' );
    $catalog->publish ( 'Stage', 'Live' );
     foreach ($item['Products'] as $elem){
         $product = new Product();
         $product ->Title = $item['title'];
         $product ->writeToStage ( 'Stage' );
         $product ->publish ( 'Stage', 'Live' );


DB::Manipulate() is one of the fastest data insertions in the database mode. Maybe I something dont know...
