"[Solved] Memory used up with loop function"

edited June 2019 in Help
Hi,

I am having an issue with the amount of memory my code uses below. I only have quite a low spec computer and only about 2gb spare memory, so I know I am limited.

In my data set I want to go through about 14,000 examples which uses about 50,000 lines of raw data to find the K-NN.

At the moment I can only do batches of about 250 examples before I run out of memory. I have had a look around the forum and tried a few different things but nothing seems to reduce the memory I use.

I am a little unsure why it uses so much memory as once it loops and gets the K-NN prediction for one example and stores the result so it can write it to the excel file it can forget the rest of the information like the model etc...

Any help would be much appreciated of pointing me in the right direction to read up about this.

Thanks,

Oli

    Hi,

    I think I found a solution for this by using the free memory and Materialize Data operator. Using these functions seems to keep the memory low. I did a few tests to ensure that the data did not change and my sample seemed to be ok.

    I have pasted the code in below, if anyone does see any issues I would be interested to know.

    Thanks,

    Oli
