The following section deals with the memory consumption for GATE documents, annotations and features.
All GATE document memory usage examples below result from synthetic tests over GATE 5.2.1 documents.
The numbers below are in megabytes, unless specified otherwise. They were taken on a 32bit Java 6u20 on Windows 7.
|Annotations per character /Document size||10kB||100kB||1MB||10MB|
- Each document should contain random words with an average of 10 symbols.
- Each annotation should be approximately 4 symbols with 4 features.
- Annotations should have different start and end point.
