Difference between o2-sim and o2-sim-serial

Hi @swenzel

Could you please explain the difference between

  1. o2-sim
  2. o2-sim-serial

Thank you,

The first one is using multiple processes and a distributed architecture to achieve a high level of parallelism. The second is the conventional serial way of doing simulation (generation, transport, IO strictly one after the other) and is kept as reference solution – also because it has the usual verbose output.

Thank you for the quick reply, Sandro.

So, the basic the difference between the two commands is

  1. use o2-sim when you want the simulation to go as fast as possible
  2. use o2-sim-serial when you want to see what is going on in the simulation

Is this understood correctly?

Thank you,
