# how can find out computational requirements of EnergyPlus Run?

I need to give some rough "computational effort" numbers for looking at very detailed models for urban regions. What I need to estimate is how much CPU power is needed to model something like every building in a large urban area (New York, Chicago, LA, etc) at a very high time resolution (maybe even using the next generation energy modeling engine and going beyond EnergyPlus).

I can do some simulations of prototypical buildings and then use multipliers to get computational efforts. But, what I need to figure out is the number of floating point and integer operations needed to run a model.

Is there an output in some report in EnergyPlus or OpenStudio that gives the number of flops/IOPS? I can't find one.

Thanks,
