[Gate-users] Output file size

Hi Suhaili,

I can not answer you about the SPECT benchmark that I don't know at all, and
for the /run/beamOn to, because I always work on PET.
But don't worry about the file size, I personally get more than 1GB of data
(using root format) in my simulations only storing coincidences. They are
also simple but usually last the real time of a scan. And in the case on
long simulations with a lot of activity, I can get about 100GB !! So don't
be afraid ! I am working in PET so it is normal to get larger files than in
SPECT but 15MB is totally normal.

Hope it could reassure you,
