1.) Is it possible to throttle the import so it doesn't make the server hurt.
2.) Does it produce some kind of a report that shows how many records were imported and how long they took?
Actually in my case we are importing data daily from a feed. Some of the records are new and some of them are just updating existing records. So a report of some kind that listed each day would be nice..maybe headers like this:
Date | Time start | time stop | # of posts updated | # of new posts | status
