Split Merge - Settings

Hi - I am looking for some guidance / thoughts on how to optimize run time and success of split-merge(s). I have been able to successfully run very small data sets this way (e.g. 3x20images), however I am working my way up to some very large data sets. Right now I am experimenting with a 721 image set that processes on its own in roughly 3.5 hours…however I have yet to have a successful split-merge of the same data set. Right now I am attempting a split (103 image clusters) with the remaining settings the same and it has been grinding for 10+ hours. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

That’s quite strange for sure. Are you running this in WebODM or command line?

Running WebODM. I was able to process a split-merge successfully…but it took significantly longer than processing the entire set singularly.

can you please mention the size of your data set and the settings you used to successfully run split merge?
