I just tried the distributed simulation with levels demo that you have here.
I found that running this on my machine as a standalone simulation, the performance was much better (real time factor of about 100%) where as when I ran them distributed as a primary and two secondaries, the performance was considerably worse (real time factor of about 60%). Is this to be expected or am I doing something wrong here?
If it is to be expected, are there any benefits to using distributed simulation at the moment? And are there plans to make it any better?
I’m asking because I’m looking at ways to scale up my current gazebo simulation to include more robots, whilst still maintaining the same real time factor.
