SSIS - Performance issues, is there a way to disable transactions?

I have a SSIS project which, on my development VM running SQL 2012 Standard, is taking over an hour to run.  I stopped the job but the SSIS service did not release the 2.4GB or memory it  was using.

I then restarted the SQL Server service and that is taking a very long time; in excess of 15 minutes.   The only thing running on this server is the SSIS task.  What I'm wondering is if the SQL Server are doing some monstrous rollbacks.  If this is the case is there a way to turn off the transaction functionality to speed things up?

Also, as the DB is not used by anyone while the SSIS operation completes would there be any benefit to running the DB in single user mode?

I'm pretty desperate to speed this SSIS project up so any tips on debugging, identifying bottlenecks would be greatly appreciated.

What's your DB recovery model? And what are you trying to do in SSIS?

Hi Jim,

Sorry to learn you are disappointed with distribution of points.

ScottPletcher advised that I cannot disable transactions which was  a direct answer to a question in my post.

Walter Padrón advised the same but also provided advice on a workaround, though not applicable in my case.

Your solution was by far the most helpful and which I indicated by both marking it as the Best solution and providing the majority of the points.

If you still feel the distribution of points was unfairly allocated please let me know why and if the system allows I would be more than happy to revise.  I appreciate your help and am sorry if the distribution of points caused offence.

Best regards,

Scott

That was not an expression of disappointment, just a courtesy 'thank you' for splitting points among answers that helped you.

Oh dear.

Sorry my misunderstanding and thank you again!

np.   I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and now live in Minnesota and play adult amateur hockey, so while 'eh' is a regular part of my vocabulary it probably loses a lot of context to where it's more frequently spoken.

Sorry eh.
