I started working on the 4th issue (Bulk import data to MySQL in chunks).

The flow of importing the tsv file to the database is:

  1. Generate the folder name, delete the folder if it exists and create a new one.
  2. Split the tsv file into chunks and place it in the folder.
  3. Insert the chunks one at a time.
  4. If the import fails at any given chunk then rollback the execution to a previous stable state.
  5. Commit the transaction.
