The performance of MATSim depends on a lot of different factors:
To get a better understanding, under which circumstances MATSim performs best, we created a simple benchmark (performance test) that runs 20 iterations of a sample scenario with different settings. If you run the benchmark on your machine, we would be happy if you could send us your results.
Download the following zip-file: benchmark.zip [35MB]
Unzip the downloaded file.
java -Xmx500m -jar Benchmark.jar
This will generate a directory
output with some files in it from the run. The test will usually run between 25 and 40 minutes. The benchmark requires Java 1.5 or newer and 150MB free disk space.
If you want to re-run the benchmark, rename or delete the
output directory and run the test again.

We collected some results and did a short analysis on them. Have a look at the results. If you want your results included as well or have some interesting findings yourself, please submit us our benchmark results.
