Trouble loading large data into AceDB

Hi everyone, 

Thanks so much for all your advices. I upgraded our system to AceDB4.9 and
Redhat Linux 7.1. The mysterious crash during loading bulk data does not happen
again so far:)

However, I still don't really understand the numbers for CACHE1, CACHE2, and
especially DISK in cachesize.wrm.  What's the Rule to adjust those numbers
according to the size of input loading data and the memory/disk space in the
computer? Right now, I am adjusting it based on trail and error: if big numbers
don't work, I switch to the small ones, vice versa. 

Thanks again!
