Thank you for replying my question. Could somebody give me any idea about how it actually happens that using CONDOR decreases simulation time? For example I start simulation of a batch of 5 programs separately on each computer in my pool; how CONDOR helps programs run faster?

increase slightly due to overhead. However, you can run 5 simulations at
once (provided your simulations are separate program runs) and get 5x
speedup for a batch of them.
