Elapse Time you may read on the Wall Clock during your simulation run.
That's  your 1200s.

That said, you have something like 158687 NULL message sent fro Fed2
which makes 158687/1200 =  132+ message per second.
This is really too much NULL messages.

However this may be due to the time creep problem, I let Pierre
explain that for us.

In the same way 85253/1200 = 71+ tick request per second, this is sustainable
but seems exagerate.

Then all thoses federates may be ping-ponging themselves the
processing ressources.
With 3 federates plus rtig you have  7 processes (3 federates + 3 RTIA
+ 1 RTIG).
Is the average load of the machine high during the run or not?

Depends on the date of your update :-)
I will seek the date and send you the correspondinfg file.

Concerning Savannah outage sysadmin told us we cannot expect
restore until 24h.

Savannah experienced a filesystem corruption and is now halted.

The mailing lists and webpages are not affected by the outage.
The website, CVS/SVN/Git/Hg/Bzr, and the download area are affected."

Ok that would be good to know.

Such a shame :-)
