pauses in ml/ss estimation

Postby david griffiths » Tue Jul 10, 2018 6:56 am

In ml estimation of a big state space model I'm noticing that the iterations stop and then there is along pause until the results are shown. The model solves and converges but there is a long wait for output. I've set modelname.ml(showopts,m=500, c=1e-1,b) c was previously set to c=1e-5 with no appreciable change in delay

Possible confounding factor:

If it is a large model, it is possible that collating all the results after convergence takes a long time.
