Let assume I have a signal with a very large number points. Once I obtain the associated TikZ file, I may run out of memory for compilation...

Ok, so one way to solve this issue is to use the option "each nth point" that allows for skipping a few data points.

Is there a way to get rid of the warning message : "NOTE: coordinate (X,Y) has been dropped because of a coordinate filter." during the compilation ?

By nature, the option is only used for very large number of data points, thus this message appears a crazy number of times and I tend to believe this slows down the compilation...

Thank you for your help.

There's an option called filter discard warning that you can use to disable the warnings. Quoting from the PGFPlots manual:

[each nth point] can be used to reduce a huge amount of coordinates from an input file. In this case, you should also set filter discard warning=false to avoid repeated notifications about skipped coordinates.
