I'm asking for help because I would like to perform simulations with a very high number of primary events (~ 10^11). In each event I generate a proton with energy extracted from a distribution.
Since the maximum number of events that I can set for each run can't be greater than ~ 10^9, my plan is to perform ~100 simulations (each one with ~ 10^9 primary events and a different seed for the random number generator). Then I will merge the results of each run. The simulations will be performed in multithreading mode on a 36 cores machine.
I would like to ask if there are some specific guidelines to perform Geant4 simulations with a very high number of events. In particular, is there a preferred Random Engine for this specific task (now I'm using "RanecuEngine") and a preferred way to seed the generators?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
