OK. I bought a new computer some days ago, so I have now a 4 core machine

As I already wrote before, I can split planet with -Xmx7000m
-XX:+UseParallelGC using
--output=xml --overlap=0 --keep-complete=true --max-areas=2048
This creates ~ 1500 tiles.

With --output=pbf  or --output=o5m I have to reduce max-areas to something
below 1500, e.g 1024,
else the final distribution phase gets stucked doing GC. 
I assume splitting europe will be no problem 
--output=o5m --overlap=0 --keep-complete=true --max-areas=2048

I'll run some tests with different parms. It seems that the performance of
the final (write) phase
depends heavily on the number of threads, available java heap and disk
buffers and fragmentation 
of free space. It is probably needed to find a good compromise between if
you want best performance.
