Limitations of Local Models in BOC

I'm looking out for the limitations in size, number of records, etc. supported by local models in BOC. The help documentation, has an 800,000 row limit for Import Data Connections, but it's not clear is this is itself a limit con the model itself, or if it's per connection run, meaning that it would be possible to add more than 800,000 rows to a model with more than one data import. What is the practical and technical limit of a local model, that requires the use of a connected model from a HANA instance (cloud or not).

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Ricardo,

Yes the 800,000 row limit is per import.

For example you could load 800,000 records for one month and then another 800,000 records for another month.

Please note that you are limited to the memory of your system. See the overview in the Main Menu >> System >> Monitor screen

Hi John,

Thanks a lot for your answer. So, for scenarios that requiere more (may be a lot more) than 800,000 rows what would you recommend?. Would that mean we should consider a connected (live) model form a HANA instance in HCP and doing an ETL there? you know doing more formal Data Warehouse + ETL + Models.

I'm trying to figure out the limits of usability of BOC without anything else (a real data warehouse, a true ETL, more complex models, etc.). If you have any comments on that I would really appreciate it.
