FW: System processing speed

I hear that cutting back your swap file to 0 can cause your system to run
slower than a 486. Don't know for sure what the circumstances are, but you
may want to do this:

Set swap file min to 256
Set swap file max to 500-700

Supposed to stablize the swap file. Worth a try.

This just in from my engineering manager. We have tried several
scenarios/configurations on this with no solid result. If anyone out there
is processing such large files with a minimal amount of processing time,
please let me know and what configuration(s) you are using. I've tried 933
processor, 1 GB ram (uses only about 1/4 of the ram while processing), swap
file usage of zero (makes sense given the low ram usage). We're using
ProEngineer 2000i2 and imported the STEP file from UG. Any UG/PRO gurus -
or if you know of any - feel free to reply either off-list or on. Doesn't
matter.

TIA

Terry, we are having a difficult time keeping one of our projects moving.
The main reason appears to be the amount of time to process the individual
splits while working within the part model. The original part model was
generated on UniGraphics and subsequently sent to us in STEP format. The
file size has now grown to over 60 meg and increasing our process time in
some cases as much as up to an hour and a half. We have tried several things
to increase the speed, most of which you were involved. To date, nothing has
been successful.
I'm still hoping that we can determine what the primary component to
resolving this issue is and correcting it to avoid this in the future.
Please let me know how to proceed investigating a resolution.

Thank you,
