How do I increase the amount of RAM available to GAUSS? I tried setting _maxbytes. But when I run the procedure maxbytes, it returns the default of 1G. Thanks.
Recent versions of GAUSS can use all the memory that the operating system will allow.
maxbytes and __maxbytes is used in some GAUSS procedures that read in data from datasets. It controls how much data to read per iteration. A larger value will read a larger percentage of the dataset at once. This will typically be faster if your system has enough memory.
The maxbytes keyword returns the value of the __maxbytes global control value. You can use it like this:
//read and print current value of 'maxbytes' mb = maxbytes; print "maxbytes starting value = " mb; //Set maxbytes to be equal twice its current value mbnew = mb * 2; __maxbytes = mbnew; //read and print new value of 'maxbytes' mbfinal = maxbytes; print "maxbytes ending value = " mbfinal;
