Hi all. I have a large number of customers (1.7million) and 500 business locations. I want to find the average drive distance from customer to business Whenever I use Closest Facility in Network Analyst, I get no errors, but the no results. It's almost like the process times itself out after only a few seconds. Is this too much data to run this analysis?
There is no need to run such a large dataset. You will not save any time running it once over setting up a batch process to run it in realistics batches or iteratively one at a time. Time a small batch of OD or CF and estimate the total time if it were to run at once. Monitor your memory useage during this process and I am sure you will find that there is a threshold between time and memory that any additional contributions to the analysis will result in quiet failure.
