What you wanted to do
I wanted to load a big dataset use bulk loader.
Bulk loading and live loading can take quite a while for large datasets, it’s very annoying that because of a badly formatted entry the process crashes after hours of running.
What you actually did
I had to fix the issue and rerun the whole process from scratch.
Why that wasn’t great, with examples
It’s a waste of time and resources.
Instead, I would have expected the input to be validated before the process started so any errors would be detected early on.
