Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


After playing around with importing a country extract into taginfo, I wanted to test out a full planet import. After testing a few times, it seems like this would require a large ammount of ram. I tested this with a machine that has 64gb ram and it fails on the processing nodes step.

I'm curious if anyone knows how much ram is required when importing a full planet into taginfo?

Taginfo works fine with 16 GB RAM on a planet file. Have a look in the config file right near the end and change the "geodistribution" setting according to the comments there. I also suggest you subscribe to the taginfo mailing list, that's where all the people running taginfo instances hang out and can help you best.

Thanks. I modified the tagstats geodistribution value to DenseMmapArry and it worked fine on a 32gb machine.
