Default Strange wall time measurements for code profiling SU2

Dear all,

I am trying to test the performance of the SU2 code. To do this I need to measure the wall time taken per iteration. I am using a dual time-stepping approach.

I noticed that for each new outer iteration, the wall time elapsed seems to jump and then decrease for each inner iteration. This doesn't happen for the first and last outer iteration of the simulation.

Is it possible that there is a problem with the wall time screen output, or that I am not choosing the correct options in the configuration file ?

Thanks in advance.

The wall time output is an average per iteration.
The total time of one outer iteration is the last wall time value times N+1 (N the inner iteration).

By the way, if you are measuring the performance of SU2 please make sure you use the best configuration possible for that

Dear Pedro,

Thank you very much for your response - that clarifies how to test the time taken per iteration. I will make sure I am using all the correct optimizations.
