      Comments and suggestions

      • Cross check performance results occasionally with g4cpt (especially when there are big performance changes in a reference tag or an official release with respected to the previous reference).
      • Provide a time series summary plot of performance changes (an example, CPU change by MR numbers), at least, for the last one month (year) or so.
      • Configure the physics list or applications so as to reflect relevant changes in codes.
      • Add a summary plot for changes in the total number of steps and tracks (preferably by the particle type)
      • Add a summary for memory performance (total, peak and etc.) changes.
      • Add other types of hardware (an example, Intel) if/as available on the open stack.
      • Filler out any MR which may not require the CI performance run (for an example, change in scripts or other than actual codes changes which do not affect computing performance).
      • Add an instruction how to monitor performance results in the stt shift page and in the geant-dev developer page.
      • Advertise links to the CI performance page and a performance summary page from relevant geant4 internal pages.
    • 4:40 PM 4:50 PM
