I'm testing out the Parallel Processing feature and I'm curious if anyone has determined what an optimal configuration might be for a use case like this.


My process looks like this.


1) Start Shape: Database Query (returns ~750k records)

2) Flow Control: (Parallel Processing for Threads enabled)

3) Map data

4) Upsert to Salesforce


When i ran this process without Parallel Processing and the Flow Control shape it was completing in around 5 1/2 hours once a day.


I just enabled Parallel Processing and started executing it using these configured values.  Waiting to see how long this takes.


Database Query:

- Batch Count set to 0 (default)


Flow Control:

- Run as Batches of: 5000

Parallel Processing Options

- Number of Units: 4

- Unit Scope: Threads


Salesforce Operation:

- Use Bulk API: yes

- Batch Count: 5000


Thoughts on a better configuration?
