K2 alignment timing test

Edit Delete


Name K2 alignment timing test
Category Testing
Language SerialEM Scripting
Description This script measures time for aligning K2 frames. Its main purpose is to compare timing with and without a GPU, but the use of the GPU is optional. It tests all variations of counting versus superresolution, 8 or 14 frames, simple or more complex alignment, and saving frames or not. Results can be extracted from the log with: grep '^Mean\|filter.*,'
