Handle large datasets

Large datasets (e.g. a million data points or more) can slow down processing. If slow processing is a problem you can:

Add a sample transform straight after the input and set Rows to pass through only the first 100 or so rows. Once you have completed all your transforms you can then change the sample transform to pass through all rows.

Set Right pane processing delay in the Preferences window to a longer time (say 5 seconds) to ensure that that changes aren't processed until you have finished making the changes.

Set Write mode to Disabled in output files, until you are ready to write them.


Easy Data Transform exists in 32 bit and 64 bit versions for Windows. You can see which you have installed in the About window. The 32 bit version cannot address more than 4GB of memory. Which version of Easy Data Transform is installed depends on whether you have a 32 bit or 64 bit version of the Windows operating system. So, if you want to tackle really large datasets, you should use Easy Data Transform on a 64 bit versions of Windows.
