Service notice: Several of our team members are on vacation so service will be slow through at least July 13th, possibly longer depending on how much backlog accumulates during that time. This means that for a while it may take us more time than usual to answer your questions. Thank you for your patience.

Limits on the size of a PoN

LeeTL1220LeeTL1220 Arlington, MAMember, Broadie, Dev

Due to a shortcoming in the Java interface of the underlying storage space (HDF5), a single matrix cannot exceed a number of bytes equal to MAX_INT, which is 2147483647

Therefore, S x T x 8 < 2147483647, where S is the number of samples and T is the number of targets.

In a simpler form: S x T < 268435455

This is usually only an issue for WGS PoNs. In this case, we recommend setting larger binsize (e.g. 5000) to avoid a very large number of targets (T).
