My point is to use pgrouting with planet data. osm2pgrouting fails at importing whole planet, so I tried osm2po. Looked fine, it generated sql file in around 2,5h. After importing it to the db though I found there are many ways excluded from the db. Looking closer at osm2po logs:

INFO   46,421,095 of 235,414,299 ways extracted - 25,018M

So I commented out every wtr.finalMask entry in osm2po.config file. It helped a bit:

INFO   74,660,756 of 235,414,299 ways extracted - 15,761M

but still there are many ways missing. So I uncommented this one line:

disablePreFilter = true

But then right before way extracting I got this:

INFO   2,362,909,765 of 2,362,909,765 nodes extracted - 29,114M
FATAL  Exception at Thu Jul 02 07:34:50 CEST 2015- 8,932M
       Message: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: Array index out of range: -2147483648
       Class: java.lang.RuntimeException

After reading all the answers here I understand osm2po doesn't extract ways with tags it doesn't know. Do I understand correctly that disabling prefilter should extract all the ways? If so, is there any way to configure osm2po to build sql file with all the ways from osm?

I'm using osm2po 5.0.0 version. It was executed with:

java -Xmx32G -jar osm2po-core-5.0.0-signed.jar cmd=tjsp tileSize=x,c ./planet-140522.osm

on system having 64GB RAM. Map file is a little bit old, but I need exactly this version. My osm2po config is there: osm2po.config

Example of missing ways (or sections, not being sure what exactly "way" in osm means) is there: part.of.osm.file (this is part of newer osm file, not the planet, to be able to grep it reasonably fast, but it looked similar when I grepped it on planet file) leaving in the db only these 3 rows:

Which osm2po version did you use and how (parameters?) did you start it? Hmmm... 74,660,756 of 235,414,299 sounds great. The rest are buildings, places, areas, boundary segments etc. and no routable roads or paths.

May I see the complete log-file to find the ArrayIndexOutOfBounds-Exception? By the way: The error says, that one array has been populated with more than 2 Billion elements!!! To bypass this issue, use the tileSize-parameter. (tileSize=30x30,1) e.g.

But does it really make sense to mix all that data (polygon-ways and line-ways) into one table? - I don't think so. The disablePreFilter option does not influence the outcome. It only deferres the filtering and leaves it to the next process step. Useful, if you want to collect infos defined in relations before, routes e.g. And most important: osm2po does a lot more than just producing geometries. Its major task is to correct ways and to find intersections (crossings) in the network. Meaning, buildings, areas, etc. may become part of the road network.

  • I updated my question with version and configuration data. Ways - yes, it could actually put all the ways into sql file, but not in their entirety. I mean, on one example road (with one osm_id) I found only 3 sections in the db (osm_2po_4pgr rows) instead of 7. Don't know how to interpret this. Commented Jul 4, 2015 at 3:09
  • OK, after your comment here I gave some more tries and found out the problem was on my side. I used older data than I should - this is why my ways didn't match. Commented Jul 4, 2015 at 8:57

  • Log file is here. Yes, there are more than 2 billion nodes in planet osm, so it seems it hung on nodes. Mixing roads and polygons doesn't make sense, that's true. I thought ways are just ways, not some lines or poligons. Commented Jul 6, 2015 at 3:46
  • Ok, thanks. Now I know which array has thrown the error. I will increase its capacity beyond 2Gig some ugly day next winter or so ;-) This is possible because I do not use standard Java arrays. Till then, please fallback to the tileSize param instead which has been indroduced expecially for these kind of issues. THX.
