Table 1 Execution time from specifying the input file to presentation of graphical results in VMCMC

From: VMCMC: a graphical and statistical analysis tool for Markov chain Monte Carlo traces

Size of tree Posterior Trace size Time
(#leaves) (# trees) (# samples) (seconds)
9 20 105 3.3
12 27 103 2.2
42 105 105 4.2
185 267 105 14.0
  1. The amount of time taken by VMCMC from input to display of results is proportional to the number of samples and the size of the trees. For average sized trees, the loading delay of “Tree Analysis” tab is almost negligible but for large trees, the delay becomes noticeable
