How to share the workload of a simulation across multiple cores

Post by gvgramazio » 27 Oct 2018, 15:29

Hi, I need to launch a simulation a very high number of times, so time is precious for me. Each time the V-REP is simulating only one of my cores is fully used while the others don't seem to be affected. There is some setting that I'm missing in order to allow V-REP to parallelize the workload of a simulation?

P.S. I use V-REP as a simulation environment for my project on neural networks. This means that each time I simulate I use a slightly different control on the actuators involved to train my neural networks. Running multiple simulations in parallel instead of a single parallelized simulation isn't unfeasible but I have to modify the algorithm that I'm using right now and I prefer of not doing so in an early stage of development.

Hello,

currently V-REP is not made to be ran multiple times on the same machine, in an efficient manner (i.e. does not share the workload across multiple cores, or the OS handles this in its own manner).

Cheers
