Dear Massimo

You are likely to be the first person to really use *large* datasets  
in the IPT, although we have put several 10s of millions of records in  
a test environment.
The IPT has been carefully designed to use a low memory footprint.  To  
start with, I would recommend 128MB for Tomcat, and enough disk space  
to hold your output archives.  There are no particular requirements  
other than disk space for larger datasets.

Will the input be sourced from a database?

Best wishes,
