MATSim Benchmark

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 and Installation

Download the zip-file containing the benchmark: benchmark.zip (35MB).

Unzip the downloaded file.

Running the benchmark

On the command line, run the following:

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.
