Please provide an example of what you are evaluating.

You could also do some testing of both the timing and the memory usage for various n by
using the Timing and and MaxMemoryUsed functions, e.g. Timing[your evaluation] and
MaxMemoryUsed[] after your evaluation finishes. Then plotting the {n, Timing} or
{n, MaxMemoryUsed[]} pairs can give you an ideas as to how the resource use of your
calculation is growing. You can also use Fit to get a function that can be used to
predict the resource use at values of n that you have not yet tried.
