API Batch limit of 200

Helo All,


I have a situation where I have to load a large number of records using Salesforce webservice API.  With the current limit on the number of records (200) per API call, it is taking about 6 hours in total (with 50 cocnurrent threads). Is there any way to bump that number from 200 to a higher number, even by means of contacting Salesforce with a special request for the enterprise.


Note: We have enterprise license.

We've been "told" that for special large data pushes, we could contact them and they would open the limits during off hours. We have yet to attempt this, however.


So, yes, you should contact them and request more throughput.


The latest version of the dataloader uses the newer "Bulk API" which can improve performance by 10x.
