Python script seems to stop running when handling very large dataset

With so little information provided, not much light will be shed. When
it stops running, are there any errors? How is the dataset being
processed? How large is the dataset? How large a dataset can be
successfully processed? What libraries are being used? What version of
Python are you using? On what operating system? With how much memory?
With how much disk space is used? How much is free? Are you processing
files or using a database? If the latter, what database? Does it write
intermediate files during processing? Can you monitor memory usage
during processing (e.g. with a system monitor) to see how much memory
is consumed?
