App crash when trying to load a large amount off data into my app

I am trying to load a JSON of 40 000+ records into my Realm Database. Here is my function

AFJSONRequestOperation *operation = [[AFJSONRequestOperation alloc]init];
[AFJSONRequestOperation addAcceptableContentTypes:[NSSet setWithObject:@"text/html"]];

operation = [AFJSONRequestOperation JSONRequestOperationWithRequest:request success:^(NSURLRequest *request, NSHTTPURLResponse *response, id JSON) {

    NSArray *relations = [JSON copy];
    NSLog(@"COUNT SI %d",relations.count);

    dispatch_async(dispatch_get_global_queue(DISPATCH_QUEUE_PRIORITY_DEFAULT, 0), ^{
        NSArray *relations = [JSON copy];
        RLMRealm *realm = [RLMRealm defaultRealm];
        [realm beginWriteTransaction];

        for (NSDictionary *dict in relations) {
            Relation *relation = [[Relation alloc]init];

            relation.rel_address = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Address"]];
            relation.rel_balanceTotal = [[dict valueForKey:@"BalanceTotal"]doubleValue];
            relation.rel_bank_country_code = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"BankCountryCode"]];
            relation.rel_bank_number = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"BankNumber"]];
            relation.rel_city = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"City"]];
            relation.rel_city_id = [[dict valueForKey:@"CityId"]intValue];
            relation.rel_code = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Code"]];
            relation.rel_country = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Country"]];
            relation.rel_country_code = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"CountryCode"]];
            relation.rel_customerProspect = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"CustomerProspect"]];
            relation.rel_customerCode = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"CustomerProspectCode"]];
            relation.rel_email = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Email"]];
            relation.rel_expired_total = [[dict valueForKey:@"ExpiredTotal"]doubleValue];
            relation.rel_fax = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Fax"]];
            relation.rel_gsm = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"GSM"]];
            relation.rel_latitude = [[dict valueForKey:@"Latitude"]doubleValue];
            relation.rel_longitude = [[dict valueForKey:@"Longitude"]doubleValue];
            relation.rel_memo = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Memo"]];
            relation.rel_name = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Name"]];
            relation.rel_phone = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Phone"]];
            relation.rel_turnovertotal = [[dict valueForKey:@"TurnoverTotal"]doubleValue];
            relation.rel_vat_country_code = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"VATCountryCode"]];
            relation.rel_vat_number = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"VATNumber"]];
            relation.rel_website = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"Website"]];
            relation.rel_zipcode = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@",[dict valueForKey:@"ZipCode"]];
            [realm addObject:relation];
        [realm commitWriteTransaction];


} failure:^( NSURLRequest *request ,NSHTTPURLResponse *response ,NSError *error , id JSON ){
    NSLog(@"error is %@",error);
[operation start];

Everything works oké for 10 000 objects. But when I go to 40 000, I get this error:

  • How can I easily delete all objects in a Realm
  • Why does Realm suggest that List<T> properties be declared using “let”?
  • Realm Swift: always put nil values last in sort
  • Filter realm objects based on counting list<t>
  • How can I properly copy objects from one Realm object to another object
  • NSDiacriticInsensitivePredicateOption not supported by Realm
  • Communications error: <OS_xpc_error: <error: 0x356dc614> { count = 1, contents =
        "XPCErrorDescription" => <string: 0x356dc86c> { length = 22, contents = "Connection interrupted" }

    Can anyone please help me? Thanks in advance !!


    It crashes before the “COUNT SI” log. So I think it has something to do with AFNetworking?
    Also I noticed that it does not crashed on simulator…

    This problem is unrelated to Realm.

    There’s your problem. AFJSONRequestOperation will attempt to deserialize the JSON in memory and your app will no longer have any available memory, and will get terminated.

    Also I noticed that it does not crashed on simulator…

    This is because the simulator has access to much more memory than an iOS device.

    You should find ways to reduce the size of your network requests, either by requesting less data at a time or using a less wasteful response format than JSON strings.

    Wrap loop’s body in @autoreleasepool

    Also copying the same JSON twice seems redundant.
