Compared to Honeysuckle, Data Import in Iris is more robust, predictable, and reliable.  Up to 50K MARC records can be imported reliably in a reasonable 2 hours, and up to 100K records may be imported in less than 8 hours. These imports create new instances, holdings, and items. Tests were performed on imports that UPDATE records but there are still ongoing issues in this workflow.
