Question

Is NetLogo a good platform for big models (>10,000s of patches, turtles)?

How can I speed up a model that runs very slowly?

We just published an article on execution speed of NetLogo; it is available at: http://jasss.soc.surrey.ac.uk/20/1/3.html

The article's main points are (a) NetLogo is not necessarily slow for executing large scientific models, and in fact has speed advantages over some alternatives; and (b) NetLogo models do often execute very slowly at first but can almost always be sped up dramatically by using a few basic techniques. We provide a step-by-step strategy for measuring and improving execution speed. We also identify tools for efficient analysis (sensitivity analysis, parameter-fitting, etc.) of NetLogo models.
