RAM limitation while imputing missing values

My laptop has 4GB RAM. I am trying to impute missing values of temperature in the training data set using the mice package. I came across this error while imputing:

Error: cannot allocate vector of size 12.2 Gb

  1. How can I resolve this issue?
  2. Any online computing environment where I can perform the imputation operation?

Any feedback appreciated.

If you have RAM problems you should process each sample separately instead of processing the whole dataset at one time.
