Table 2 The loading performance of standalone SinicView The loading time of standalone SinicView by different sizes of input data and initial and maximum memory heap sizes. The default value for the initial JVM heap size is 4 M bytes; maximum is 64 M bytes. For the maximum 64 M byte heap size, the standalone SinicView can handle up to approximately 11 M byte alignment data. The maximum value of the input data size is linear in the maximum heap size. We observe that the initial heap memory size has little impact on the loading time. This result was benchmarked on a 3 GHz Pentium4 PC with 1 GB RAM.
