I was testing the sample files (annual_daylight) and I decided to benchmark the sample file with a much lowered grid size, to increase the load. CPU count was set to 5 as I have 6 physical cores (or 12 with HT, but that’s not the topic).
With 44,770 points and -ab 2:
sensor_count = 30 --> 55min simulation (this is default in the bundled .gh file)
sensor_count = 200 --> 12min simulation (this is LBT default)
sensor_count = 1000 --> 6 min simulation
sensor_count = 8954 (points/cpu count) --> 6 min simulation
I’ll suggest to have the default set to somewhere around points/cpu count
