Allocating more memory to a program

    I'm using a workforce management program and am involved in a data transfer
    project - the running time of this program is rather slow in relation to the
    automation I am using.

    Is there a way I could allocate more RAM to this program and would that
    facilitate an increase in speed?

    many thanks

    Hi,
    Could you describe your setup more thoroughly?
    Operating System, processor, amount and type of RAM, hard disk, etc.
    And finally, which is the - slow - application you are running onto it.

    Carlos,

    I think this is what you need - I'm using:

    Windows XP Professional version 2002
    Intel(R) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33 GHz
    980 Mb ram
    Hard drive ST 380815AS
    Software: Genesys workforce management program - a real time database

    Please let me know if you need any other info.

    Many thanks

    Hi,
    This is a Newsgroup for 64-bit operating systems and you are using a 32-bit
    one.
    All that being said, if you are convinced that your program needs more
    memory, I would go from the 1GB you have to 2GB.
    If data transfer is limited by hard disk speed you might also consider
    setting up a RAID array with, at least, two identical disks.
    Best of luck.

  5. And if this is a laptop, consider swapping out the HD for a faster one. Most
    laptops ship with quite slow drives. Upgrading to a 7200 RPM drive can make
    a noticeable difference. Combine that with increasing the RAM to 2 GB, and
    you should see a significant difference.

    Drive is an 80GB, 7200rpm, 3.5" Seagate Barracuda.
    He might also be running out of space, depending on what he has installed in
    it.

    In addition to the above suggestions, you might get a head start by changing
    the process to a higher priority (try above normal initially).

    Maybe http://www.bitsum.com/prolasso.php is the thing for you?

    I think this may be a little more on topic.
    I am currently running:
    Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
    Intel Core 2 CPU running at 2.4 GHz
    6.0 GB of RAM.

    I am using Civil 3D 2009 (32-bit) in compatibility mode. Since this is a 32-bit program and really the only data intensive program I run on this system. Is there a way to allocate 2 GB of RAM exclusively to this program? It's my understanding that it technically wouldn't be able to run more than approx. 3.2 GB or RAM any way. And... would this even help to speed the program?
