    is the performance of sort command affected by buffer size?
    I have load of huge apache log to sort, it takes almost a day to sort 4GB apache log. I would like to know the performance if I set the buffer size to 100MB or above (I have not set it explicitly, and I dont know the default buffer size....I just see a list of the temporary sorting files with the size of 23MB showing up in my disk)
