It's never a good idea to extract huge ECC tables in a normal data flow.

Refer to Best way to read data from SAP ECC for a more elaborate discussion on the different options.

Please go through the link posted by Dirk. If you can create RFC Programs then you can make better use of RFC data transfer method while pulling data from SAP ECC, but this method will also generate ABAP programs on the Application server.

What is the Data transfer method which you are using in the Datastore configuration?

If you have access to tables being used by SAP Application server then you can directly connect to the daatabase and pull data
