  1. CARMA3 and MEGAN were run on a compute cluster, using 100 nodes. metaBEETL was run on an SSD drive. Memory consumption was taken at peak memory usage for one thread. All times are taken as wall clock times. For CARMA3 and MEGAN the time for the longest running time of the 100 threads was taken, the average time for MEGAN was 12 h 15 m and for CARMA 12 h 30 m.
