    882. '''Loading time''': The time spent in a request does not depend exclusively on the size of the object to be loaded, but also largely depends on the characteristics of the internet connection and the ECOMS-UDG traffic load at the moment of accessing the data. Thus, if the data request takes too long, we strongly advice to simplify the requested dataset and try to divide the job into smaller queries.

    1012The `ecomsUDG.Raccess` package has been built using a (Linux) 32-bit OS, as well as all examples and time estimates. Thus, the performance may vary significantly depending on the aforementioned factors. As a rule of thumb, this would be a recommended usage of the `loadECOMS` function:

    1315* [wiki:./continentalSelection EXAMPLE 2: Regional-Continental Domain Selections]: Depending on the size of the spatial window, it may be possible to access all members, but preferably a few members should be selected, and time spans no longer than one decade.

     17In the particular case of global domain selections (`lonLim` and `latLim` arguments set to `NULL`) for forecast data, it is recommended that only single-member, single-year selections are performed, due to the large size of this type of requests. Note that this is just an approximate recommendation. Object sizes also depend on the spatial resolution (CFS has approximately 1º horizontal res., while System4 is 0.75º and WFDEI 0.5º). Similarly, while GCM data will normally return data for the whole Earth (including oceans) for most variables, many observational datasets (like WFDEI) provide only data for land areas.
