First time using the location-allocation tool and am rather disappointed with the performance. On a 2.0gHz, dual core processor with 3.0gb RAM I am only able to load approximately 30 demand points per minute. ...and I have about 20,000 that need to be loaded.
Just curious what solutions, if any, other users have found to speed up the load time of demand points.
Thus far, I can only come up with the collect events to reduce the number of demand points, but any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
Slow loading demand points has nothing to do with location-allocation solver. Most likely you have a bad spatial index on your street feature class. Is it a shape file or file geodatabase? So check the index, create it if it does not exist (especially for shapefile) or re-create the index. Regards, Jay Sandhu
