When one of my sites needed moving I bumped into the import limit of PHPMyAdmin. The problem seemed to be the private messages, so I just didn't copy them and then runned the export again with only the private messages: problem solved.

But what happens when you have tables that are too big... in that case splitting could be a lot of work. I didn't try I but I found this: http://www.ozerov.de/bigdump.php

For importing a large database file, like the iptoc database of XM-Memberstats, I normally use BigDump too.

Another option is the module XOOPS DB Backup & Restore 3.0. BigDump has been integrated in this module.
XOOPS DB Backup & Restore 3.0 has different backup options. You can backup your database tables to a folder on your server, but also have each table sent by email (not handy with big tables I think).
Each table can be restored separately.
