Subject: clustering hardware requirements

Here's some numbers using running locally:

Raw content size:
9.2 GB, 48K "items" -- note, most of the files are GZipped

It took 15 minutes to convert all of these to sequence files on an i7 single CPU w/ 4 cores and hyper-threading. 3.4 GHz machine with 16 GB of RAM

After converting to sequence files:
40 GB, 659 items.

Encoded Vectors (see cardinality = 5000: 11 GBs for 1,300 items.  This took 83 minutes to convert

Splitting into test and train took 9 minutes for SGD.  I had to kill the SGD job due to some issues I'm having on my machine w/ CPU temperature (SGD really cranks on the CPU and something is messed up on my machine) that I need to track down.

For clustering,  about the same time for  converting to sequence files

The job to convert to vectors took a while (it scrolled out of my window).  The resulting tfidf-vecs were 7.8 gb.
