Unless the individual cells are very large (at least about 5000 states/cell), there probably wouldn't be a noticeable speedup, so this is more of a theoretical than a practical question.shailesh wrote:How could I make use of multi-threading here?
Sounds like your desktop machine doesn't have MPI installed.on my desktop, which has 4 cores, I get pc.nhost = 1.
But on NSG with 2 nodes and 4 cores/node, I get pc.nhost = 8. Why so?
With regard to the number of processors that actually exist on your desktop machine--what happens if you run neurondemo, select the pyramidal cell model, then click on
Tools / NEURON Main Menu / Parallel Computing
and finally click on the ParallelComputeTool's "Refresh" button? Specifically,how many processors does it find?
(reported in line at the top of the ParallelComputeTool).
