Have you encountered these limitations when working with Duplicate Detection functionalities in Dynamics 365?
You can include only 450 characters in the matchcode. Either change or delete rule conditions to reduce the number of characters included, and then try again.
Bulk Detect Duplicate Limit Exceeded. The Bulk Duplicate Detection job cannot detect more than 5000 duplicates. Please review your duplicate rules or resolve existing duplicates and rerun the job
Although the OOB duplicate detection functionalities are useful in some cases, I often find myself wasting hours to workaround those limitations when dealing with large amount of data. So I decided to build a solution which allows me to quickly query for duplicates and see how many records duplicated.
Deduplicator is a plugin for XrmToolBox. You can download the plugin in XrmToolBox Plugin Store.

Deduplicator is open source
