chaitugk and ArcGIS engine slows down due to large  database

Discussion created by chaitugk on Mar 22, 2012
I am developing an application for risk assessment due to hazard.
I have a shape file of polygons of 5 million features.
I am performing calculations on the fields to obtain some values which uses near tool also.

Now I have two problems here,
1. The simulation is taking lot of time(around 60 hours)
2. I want an alternate solution for near tool to reduce the time. Or the algorithm for near tool.

I am using ArcGIS engine and developer environment

Thank you in advance
