In theory, if the simulations are independent it would be faster to
run them independently, but you actually doubles the speed if you run
in parallel in a SINGLE dual core machine.
I would not recommend you to parallelize it to more than one machine
if your network fabric is Gigabit Ethernet... unless you are really in
a hurry to finish a single simulation.
have fun !
