Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Xalan & Big Files & Chunking...
/ Michael Cortez <email@example.com> was heard to say: | I have some huge XML files that I'm processing (3mb) and discovered that | Xalan tends to blow up if I process the entire file at once. So I broke it | up into three smaller files, that I can successfully process with the | autoidx.xsl to produce three large HTML files. | | I would rather Chunk it, so I tried substituting the chunk.xsl file for my | autoidx.xsl on the command line, and now it just, uh, twiddles it's thumbs? | Xalan fires up and sucks up CPU & memory, but never exits (I waited an hour, | when I processed w/ autoidx it took about one minute) and doesn't produce | any output files... You're using autoidx.xsl on a roughly 1mb file with XalanJ and it finishes in about a minute? That's staggeringly good performance. | Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Have you tried any of the debugging options? You might also put in some xsl:messages in places like the root template and maybe the book template to see if it ever gets started. How much real memory does your machine have? I was going to suggest that it might be thrashing, but if it does the single files quickly, I can't see why it wouldn't do the chunks almost as quickly. Be seeing you, norm -- Norman Walsh <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Even while a thing is in the act http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | of coming into existence, some Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | part of it has already ceased to | be.--Marcus Aurelius
