[gdal-dev] Slow GDALComputeRasterMinMax on nc grids

But I do use

		-DCHUNK_CACHE_SIZE=67108864 ^

And get ~6 sec with a GMT release build (before it was a debug build) but still ~27 sec with gdalinfo. All VS2019 builds

Hi Even,

No I don't set CHUNK_CACHE_SIZE during compile at all.  I do however set USE_HDF5=OFF

(I believe I set that because of that same chunking issue which we discussed here before)
