populating huge no of vertex and edges?

Jan 21, 2010 at 12:50 PM


currently we are reading nodes and edges from database , however when we create huge vertex and millions of edges there were an instance where we could see memory exceptions . What should be efficient way to handle this kind of situation , will it be efficient to use graph ML ?

is there any way to save the graph in GraphML?

NodeXL is not optimized for huge graphs.  We've targeted graphs with a few thousand vertices and edges.  You can populate a graph with millions of edges if you have enough memory, but the layout algorithms are going to be very slow and drawing the graph will take forever.

If you still want to do this, the only thing I can recommend is adding more memory to the machine, or if you are already maxed out on 32-bit Windows, switch to 64-bit.

We do not support saving to GraphML.  You can implement GraphMLGraphAdapter.SaveGraphCore() if you really need this.
