Different time spent in Windows and Linux

Different time spent in Windows and Linux

I have a task, where I read a text file, parse it and save some contents in SQLite database. So there are only write-operations to database.
In Windows this task is performed in 75 seconds. In Linux - in 15 minutes.
Profiling of code displays that database operations take 90% of all task time.

Are there any suggestions about what settings in the SQLite can cause such a catastrophic difference in times?

It may be that the file-system on Windows is not syncing to disk when asked to, whereas Linux is.

Grouping your write operations into a transaction or transactions should help.

Operations are grouped in both Windows and Linux.
The problem was removed by enclosing the block of operations in "brackets":
