Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-216) expand largeCodeGen.java test
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2006 21:53:15 GMT
I haven't followed the largeCodeGen test much, does it take an extremely
long time or need a lot of memory?  I am not sure what amount of time is
the cutover from not being appropriate in the nightly suite.  Otherwise
we should just have add it somewhere else.

I have run the large data test recently, and I think it took 6 hours and
17gb on a 1.8 laptop.  So far I have not made it through a whole suite
(basically I have only had overnight free on the machine and it has
not finished).  It would be nice if when this test succeeds if it
dropped it's tables so you would not be left with 17gb in the test
directory.

If anyone has the resources to run the suite repeatedly, that would
great.  It now will catch some serious blob/clob regressions we have
had in the past.

 What are the system requirements?
