Hello Geant4 Community,
I am not sure whether the issue I am seeing is due to MT, physics, or geometry, so I will try here first.
My simulation setup is a simple low-energy (~1MeV) photon beam incident on a voxelized geometry (~200x200x200 voxels, 1-2mm dx/dy/dz, implemented as simple 3 layer nesting of PVReplica of G4_Water).
Though my simulation is multi-threaded to 64 cores, I often only see 15-20 core net utilization (all cores are running, but not at 100% load).
If I change the simulation to geantinos (rather than gamma), I see ~100% load on all cores, suggesting it isn't due the geometry or source implementation, but more likely the physics. I have tried StandardEM option3, as well as the livermore EM model.
Does anyone have experience in maximizing the CPU utilization in such scenarios?
Thank you in advance, Ming
