Time Parallel run
I want to time my parallel CFD network using a typical work case which will run for 100 iterations, from 1 to many computers. Is there a way of doing that in a systematic way so I don't need to time the run myself with a stopwatch?

A less accurate way could be to have it write a very small file at the start and end of your run; maybe use execute command.
