[mkgmap-dev] [PATCH v5]splitter memory usage

From Felix Hartmann extremecarver at gmail.com on Thu Nov 17 15:48:58 GMT 2011

some more speed observations:
country germany.pbf from Geofabrik

splitter_patched with optimize-mem: 3 min 6 seconds
splitter_patched without optimize-mem: 3min 2 seconds
old splitter: 3 min 42 seconds

I am currently running against europe.pbf, will post the results later. 
But it seems that the patched mkgmap is consistently a bit faster. I 
think optimize-mem is better of by default though (most people using 
mkgmap/splitter have powerful computers anyhow).
I'm interested if the 1024 max areas vs the old 255 and subsequent less 
runs make for a bigger speedup than on small(er) extracts.
