Subject Re: Limiting the memory used by an annotator ?
Date Sat, 29 Apr 2017 15:37:12 GMT
In situations like these, I usually limit the size of the input 
documents. There are various policies you can adopt. You can refuse to 
handle long documents; you can cut off long documents at an arbitrary 
point; or you can split long documents at more or less sensible 
positions (try to find a paragraph break or at least the end of a sentence).

faulty: they are adapted to the documents I expect to parse. But as this is an open system,
people can upload whatever they want and the parser crashes by multiplying annotations (or
at least takes 20 minutes in garbage-collecting millions of annotations).
