I'm currently uploading one of Wikipedia's dump files. It has 1GB compressed and ~7GB uncompressed. It has been importing it for 6 hours already. The size of the imported table in MySQL is at the moment 1.5GB(data+indexes). Will it continue to import until the size of the table will reach 7GB?
Note: The data directory of the database in on an external HDD. Considering this is only a development, so I'm not concerned by the real performance.
