To insert big data in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Use Eloquent Chunking: Laravel provides a chunk method that allows you to process large datasets in smaller chunks. This can help avoid memory issues when inserting a large number of records.

Model::chunk(1000, function ($data) {
    foreach ($data as $item) {
        // Insert data here
    }
});


  1. Use Database Transactions: Wrap your insert operations in a database transaction to ensure data consistency and improve performance.

try {
    // Insert big data here

    DB::commit();
} catch (Exception $e) {
    DB::rollBack();
}

$data = // Your big data array

DB::table('table_name')->insert($data);


  1. Optimize your database configuration: Make sure your database configuration is optimized for handling large datasets. Consider increasing the max_allowed_packet size in MySQL and adjusting other database settings according to your needs.


By following these steps, you can efficiently insert big data in Laravel without running into performance or memory issues.
