Overlay topology operations can run for hours without a result (meaning I give up waiting) when at least one of the two layers is large. When I say large, I mean an imported polygon shapefile around 2 Gb.
My system has 24 Gb RAM, 4 cores, Win 10, CUDA/GPU enabled. Latest Edge (.165) version M9. But, none of the CPU, GPU, RAM or disk access are anywhere near being fully utilised.
"Inserting Records" is the time hog - and the progress indication does not advance giving no idea how much time is required to complete the task.
I guess I'm looking for anyone with similar experiences and what, if anything, might be done to identify the bottleneck before seeking a possible solution.
