MacOS M1 Pro 16gb RAM, 1TB flash drive
I’m a beginner and have been playing around with WebODM which I installed myself for a few months. Worked great with 12 megapixel images and I’ve processed up to 591 of them without problems.
I started playing around 20 megapixel images, ran some tests with up to 180 of them, again processed without problems in about 2 hours 18 minutes.
Now I’ve tried a big one with 767 images and I’m not getting anywhere. The progress bar never gets past the gear icon (15+ hours). I’ve tried splits as low as 50 with split-overlaps of 50 (the default overlap of 150meters seems huge), and it still seems to hang. Diagnostics shows around 300 MB of the 16 GB free. I’m sure its running out of memory, it is a pity that the swap can’t be set over 4GB on MacOS since the 1TB flash drive is pretty much super fast memory.
I’m trying setting the concurrency at 1 to see what happens, but is there anything else I should be trying?
How can I see if progress is being made if the progress bar doesn’t move?
