How large a network can NodeXL handle?

NodeXL can manage different numbers of edges based on the available computer system resources.  The following are rough estimates:

  • 4 GB of RAM: SMALL networks only less than a few thousand edges
  • 8 GB of RAM: MEDIUM networks of less than 10-15 thousand edges
  • 16GB of RAM: LARGE networks of less than 80-100 thousand edges
  • 32 GB of RAM: VERY LARGE networks of less than 200 thousand edges
