[Gate-users] Gate-users - Time to complete the simulation

Hi Davi,

from my experience there is no generic possibility to estimate the
simulation time. That said, the time correlates to the number of
emitted particles, i.e. given the same acquisition parameters (esp.
geometry), the double activity takes twice the time. Also double
simulated acquisition time means twice the simulation time.

But when the geometry changes the times are unpredictable.
A general rule of thumb is: It takes long. Sometimes very long.

Hope that helped you a bit.
