Exceeded excution time - El Forum - 08-27-2010

Hi i´m having trouble generating a file out of a big resultset, i´ll explain the problem, the code i´m using works for queries that return around 5000 rows and it´s really fast, however when i try the same thing with a bigger resultset (about 4 million rows with 10 fields each), seems like i run out of time so i´ve set max_execution_time=300 on my php.ini, i´ve tried to limit the resultset to half a million, but I still have the same problem, so a little light on my way will be appreciated, thanks for your attention.

the code i´m using:
$query = $this->gic_inventario->inventarios2($tmp01,$tmp02,$tmp03);
$delimiter = "\t";
$newline = "\r\n";
$this->zip->add_data($nombreArchivo, $datosArchivo);

PS the query takes about 2 minutes to complete.

Thanks for your answer tkyy it works, now I have different issue i´m exhausting the allowed memory, i´ve set 512 Mb in the php.ini and i´m only processing 200,000 rows at a time however, when i run the query trying to retrieve the next set of rows the error shows up and seems like the unset function doesn´t free the used memory by the resulset.

here´s the code
// get the number of rows
$query = $this->gic_pedidos->exporta_pedidos(1,0,0);
$counter= $query->result_array();
//se escriben archivos temporales
   $query2 = $this->gic_pedidos->exporta_pedidos(2,$limiteInf,$limiteSup);
   $delimiter = "\t";
   $newline = "\r\n";
   if ( ! write_file('./aplicacion/temp/files/'.date("Ymd_G-i").'_file_'.$i.'.txt',
      echo 'Error! file:'.$i;

Instead of unset(). (Or, in addition to... Leaving it in won't hurt anything)

You can use the undocument method from CI db library this just wrapps to php method, it wont load the entire result object into memory like any of the CI methods do. I found it helps in the past to conserve memory

while ($result = $data_row->_fetch_assoc()) {

Is there a way to clear the resultset the hard way?
