We are using tpk files as basemaps for a Android application. Which works great. But they take a very long time to generate. The last one was around 8 or 10 days as I recall. I have one building now. It is on day 7 and at around 2.2GB. I would guess that in the end it is going to be over 5GB someplace. So, my question is how can we speed this up. Is it depended on cpu speed? Would getting a more powerful machine help? The source data is in a gdb on the machine's local drive and the output location is also on the local drive.
Right now I have it running on a Lenovo ThinkPad with:
Intel i7-4800MQ @ 2.70GHz
NVIDIA Quadro K2100M
Looking at task manager it does not look like I am using much of the machine's resources...
