Server friendly array iteration...

I'm having some trouble keeping my server alive when iterating through huge arrays to put data in a database. Is there anything less cpu intensive than a simple count and for loop?

what size arrays are we talkin?
what are you doing that makes the monster arrays necessary?
is there a way to split the work so that you can dump the data into the db earlier instead of making the whole array?

The problem is more likely a lack of ram and needing to use swap file that is killing you.

Also use ( unset($var); ) get rid of unneeded vars and free ram.
