GXError: Attempting to load too many resources.

Hi,
I’m trying to load 2048 channels of radiometric spectra data (2 arrays x 1024 channels each) into a dataframe through a Jupyter notebook. I can load a database which has 1024 channels of either downward or upward looking spectra no problem, but if I try to load a database which contains both I get the error “GXError: Attempting to load too many resources”. This seems to happen irrespective of the number of lines I have selected. So my question, is there a limit on the number of database channels which can be loaded into a numpy array/dataframe using the gxapi?
Thank,

    @PeterTschirhart , yes, this approach has tripped a limit of 2048 resources, which is the maximum number of GXAPI classes instances that can be created at once.

    The simple gdb.read_line() will slice your 1024 radiometric channels into 1024 VV's, hence the problem. read_line() is intended for simple applications on relatively simple databases. In your application I suggest reading the specific channels you want, and use read_channel_va() to read the radiometric channels. This will return the channel in a single va, which uses 1 resource rather than 1024.

  • Prefect, thanks. That way is much faster too.
