Benchmarking Tutorial Models

Recommended Posts

There has been much discussion on machine specs v's simulation performance. Would it not be a good idea to use the tutorial models to benchmark the performance of many different machines to generate some quantifiable stats on different machine setup? The tutorial models are very basic and have the advantage that they can be run without a TUFLOW license - that way we should have greater uptake.

Anyone interested?

It's probably of little use for any further comparisons as it wasn't a tutorial model, but I've run a model on 2 separate machines (I am by no means a computer hacker so I've probably missed the important specs), with the following run times:

Intel Pentium ® D, 3.2GHz, 2G RAM = 11.6 hours

Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.66GHz, 3G Ram = 7.2 hours

It was definitely worth testing, as the second PC was being somewhat under-utilised in reception...
