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.

Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.

if you have compiled Geant4 with multi-threading support and you have migrated your application to use multi-threading (see: https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/Geant4/QuickMigrationGuideForGeant4V10) you can use multiple cores on your machine to speedup the simulation.
You specify the number of threads via the ui command:
or, to use the maximum available cores:
Use these commands BEFORE /run/initialize
If you want to scale across multiple nodes, you need to use MPI. There are examples under examples/extended/parallel/MPI. This however is a bit more advanced.
A final note: the number of events is an integer, it cannot be large than ~2*10^9 (see https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/C_Programming/C_Reference/limits.h). If you need more events you need to do multiple runs.
