Subject: estimated sorting time
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"; format=flowed
I am sort a 3.7 GB dataset on a computer with 16 free GB hard drive, and 1
GB of RAM. So i run the tagsort. It has been 6 hours already.
Can any one tell me how long it may take?
I have the choice of recreate a smaller dataset and run the sort - not
tagsort. Then the question is how long it takes to run sort of a dataset
of 3 GB on a 20 GB free disk space?
Thank you for your help.
