Entity Framework Core Plus Batch Delete - Batch Delay Interval
You need to delete millions of records but also need to pause between batches to let other applications keep on performing their CRUD operations.
The BatchDelayInterval property sets the amount of time (in milliseconds) to wait before starting the next delete batch.
Default Value = 0
// using Z.EntityFramework.Plus; // Don't forget to include this. // Pause 2 seconds between every batch var date = DateTime.Now.AddYears(-2); ctx.Users.Where(x => x.LastLoginDate < date) .Delete(x => x.BatchDelayInterval = 2000);
