I installed Geant4 & MPICH2 on Xubuntu Linux 8.04 and compiled the parallelization examples successfully.
Unfortunately all the applications do, is to construct an MPI session im main() and start it. The README files of the applications state that you can learn how to parallelize your Geant4 applications with them.
It seems to me that you don't have to do anything to parallelize your application, despite creating the MPI manager and session objects. Is this true?
There is no real documentation on how the MPI parallelization written by mister Koichi Murakami works. So I wonder if this would work?
1.) I use the "EndOfEvent()" method of the sensitive detector to add hits to an AIDA histogram.
2.) I use the "EndOfRunAction()" method of a custom run action class to write the histogram to a file.
If only the events are parallelized (and NOT the sensitive detector) this should work fine. Could anybody please enlighten me?
(I hope this is the right forum to post. There seems to be no parallelization forum.)
