What percentage of your resources should you allow Docker to use?

What percentage of your resources should you allow Docker to use if you don’t make use of your PC while processing?

Here is how much I currently use:

On default options for 2187 images the process was still not finished after almost 22 hours:

Am I just too impatient?! :frowning:

Mm, 26GB with default settings might be too little to process 2200 images. I’m surprised it didn’t fail/stop (but hey, maybe it will work). Is the task manager showing heavy CPU usage? If so, then the process is still running.

That’s way too many CPUs, you should leave 2 for the host system.

Usually I allocate 2/3 of all available memory to docker.

I really appreciate your reply, thank you. Yes, task manager still showed heavy CPU usage. I’ll try it again now and see how it goes.

Would you recommend breaking it up in, lets say, 1100 images at a time and stitch the two orthomosaics afterwards?

You could try to set --split to 800 and if you don’t need a 3D model also pass --fast-orthophoto. That will lower both memory usage and runtime. The models will be split and stitched by ODM. https://docs.opendronemap.org/large.html#local-split-merge

So, I’ve done the --split to 800 and --fast-orthophoto. The process has been running for almost 17 hours and my resource monitor looks as follows:
