Question What is the maximum simulation speed? 

Forum: Processes Involving Optical Photons
Date: 17 Feb, 2013
From: Cejo George <Cejo George>

Dear Geant4 users,
  My program simulates NaI(Tl) crystal with gamma particle defined through
GPS(focused type). When gamma hits the crystal it generates optical photons. I
have disabled visualizations and made tracking verbose 0 to increase simulation
speed. I'm only using stacking action to count number of optical photons generated 
per second.
  This way i obtain count rate of 12 events/second. I wish to reduce the total 
simulation time further so that i get a very high count rate.
  Is there any method to achieve a very high count rate or is this the maximum 
possible speed. 
  I'm using Intel Core2 Duo processor, 4GB RAM and Linux fedora core 14.

With thanks and Regards, Cejo George
