I'm running a job from a Linux box to an Amazon RDS (MySQL) that pumps in about 1GB of data via mysqlimport. It runs flawlessly, however, when I attempt the exact same command with windows I get 10000s of warnings but I cannot find a way to output those.

ASAIK, mysqlimport is the ONLY way to get large chunks of data into RDS. Any tips on outputting those warnings or if anyone has any real-world alternative examples would be appreciated!

AFAIK, there is no way to show warnings from mysqlimport. I'm not familiar with Amazon RDS, but why didn't you use LOAD DATA (LOCAL) INFILE and SHOW WARNINGS? Don't you have privileges?

Silly me. I was following their guide.. LOAD DATA (LOCAL) INFILE worked quite well. – af-at-work Aug 28 '11 at 12:39
