Thread Performance Penalty

by gatorback   Last Updated September 15, 2018 03:01 AM

Simulations are invoked from the command line. A dual-core box (4 logical CPUs or threads) can run 4 simulations (seemingly) simultaneously.

Is there a thought process or a measurement to gain a sense of the performance penalty for running two simulation per core? Ideally one would be able to measure.
