Global Mapper v24.1

Limiting number of threads during batch conversion

I'm trying to reproject a number of large files using Global Mapper, on a machine with a lot of cores and 256Gb RAM. Unfortunately, I think some of these LAS files are so dense that with 49 threads batch conversion is still running they system out of memory and crashing.

Is there a way to limit the number of threads used by batch conversion to a user-specified number, e.g. 8 in this case, so we can ensure all threads will have enough memory? (Screenshot is from quickly checking thread count and trying to limit it, not from the crash.)


  • Update: I figured out how to set MAX_THREADS from a script, but the batch conversion still seems to be reading every file into RAM before commencing conversion (note progress bar in screenshot which I would expect to only load 4 files at first, so progress in increments of 25%.
