Time to Complete Expectation Maximization Analysis?

Hello. I'm running an EM Clustering. The data is 7 columns with about 2000 entries. So far, the process has been running for more than 4 1/2 hours. I'm on a MacBook Pro with 16GB of RAM, so it's not a slow machine. Is it normal for this type of analysis with this much data to take this long?

    are you sure it's still doing something? Your process setup you provided does not link anything to any output, neither the write csv nor any of the output ports of the clustering operator are connected.
    Your process with the example size you mentioned should not take much longer than half a minute, certainly not hours (took me 20 seconds with randomly generated data).
    When a process is running at the bottom left of RapidMiner you will see the name of the currently executed operator and the time it took until now.
