Wall time spent in model components
The above plot displays the "wall clock" time spent in each model component as observed in the GEOS-Chem timers output from recent public and internal 1-month benchmark simulations (Credit: Melissa Sulprizio). This type of plot can be very helpful in determining if updates made to GEOS-Chem cause significant computational bottlenecks.
Timing information is obtained from the GEOS-Chem "Timers" output, which is printed to the log file. Timers output is activated by setting use_gcclassic_timers: true in geoschem_config.yml.
