Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
by default G4 MT uses 2 threads, but you can set their number in the main:
G4MTRunManager* rm = new G4MTRunManager(); rm->SetNumberOfThreads( ... );
The helper function: #include "G4Threading.hh" G4int G4Threading::G4GetNumberOfCores(); returns the number of logical cores of your machine.
The UI command: /run/numberOfThreads n Can be used to set the number of threads in interactive mode or macro files, but it can be used only before a /run/initialize is issued (if you use Qt GUI this does not work, before Qt GUI requires /run/initialize before starting).
Finally, you can use the environment variable G4FORCENUMBEROFTHREADS to specify the number of threads. This will overwrite all other settings, and you can use the special keyword "max" as value to use all available logical cores.
Note that currently number of threads cannot be changed anymore after /run/initialize (or G4RunManager::Initialize()) is invoked.
