BEAGLE + BEAST 2 in cluster
Cluster provides more computational power. Paralleling your BEAST jobs and using SSE in cluster could save you more than half of your commutation time.
Here we show how BEAGLE options performed on the NeSI cluster (http://www.nesi.org.nz) and laptop (MacBookPro5,1: Intel Core 2 Duo). GPU option is not included in this comparison.
||Cluster OpenMP (4 threads)
The speed is the minutes and seconds of per million samples, which is logged at the sample 36,000 by running the same xml using seed 777.
Command in laptop
Use Java likelihood calculation only, BEAGLE is not considered:
Use beagle library but no SSE:
Use beagle library and SSE extensions:
