XF 1.5 Are there any currently suggested fast importers for vBulletin?

#1
We are migrating about 6 million users and 330k posts from vBulletin 3.x. I've found a few out-of-date references to incomplete importers and ones with high price points which need to be modified anyway, but nothing current/recommended. The current system seems to be very inefficient. Are there any good options?

Hit me up if you want me to handle it for you :) However the big board importer is hands down the fastest way to import.

Just curious:
Do you have an estimate as to how long it would take to import 3M posts, 120K threads, 80K users, 200K PM, 200K attachments and 260K images in PhotoPost vBGallery (about 100GB in total)?

3M posts, 120K threads, 80K users, 200K PM,
Depending on your server setup, about 20 minutes wouldnt be far wrong.

On average 1million posts on the big board importer takes around 6 minutes.


200K attachments and 260K images in PhotoPost vBGallery (about 100GB in total)?
These would take longer, maybe a couple of hours, but you can pre-import the attachments if needed and only update the new ones.

Thanks for the Info :)

I did a test-import of this dataset including all images in approx. 45 minutes on our previous server platform using a Gearman-based importer.
