Geant4 Computing Performance Task

Contact Person


The G4CPT is not a task force but rather an open ended effort with the following objectives:

  1. Profiling to identify bottlenecks in Geant4 based on main stream applications. We need to discuss profiling tools, what we want to measure, metrics. EM, Geometry and hadronics are the areas more involved in CPU usage.
  2. Code reviews geared towards improving computing performance and coding practices.
  3. Establish computing performance activities with the High Energy Physics, Medical and Space G4 communities.
  4. Identify issues in multi-core, multi-thread G4.


We intend to meet every 6-8 weeks. Agendas are available in indico.
