Size limitations

Hi Andrew,

We get about 1MB/sec throughput on a 100Mbps switched network. Of course
there are so many variables, it's hard to say what the performance will be.

Odds are that the software is still responding, but your computer just
isn't up to the job of comparing all of that data. Data Compare can take up
lots of disk resources as well as processor power. We had just done a test
in house on a table with 150 columns and 8 million rows of data and it
didn't cause Data Compare to crash. It did take quite a while to complete,
