    You need first to select the Fuzzy Algorithm

    help will give you all the information you need:



    Few months ago I tried to use the Levenshtein distance algorithm with both Lavastorm and data3sixty to compare millions of lines with hundred of thousand of records. Neither Lavastorm or Data3sixty were able to run such huge amount of commands on my computer.

    We wrote a Python script and launched it on a 16 core server.

    The way you are writing the Python code will have a huge influence on the processing time. But 13.000 x 800 processing should be  done within few minutes. Which algorithm have you selected?
