What do the different highlighted options here mean? And which one do I most likely need to follow to run my COMSOL.mph files fast?

Edit: Also, is there a difference between the highlighted options (blue line), and running comsol from the command line?

RE: Which option to pick to run my COMSOL file fast?

In Comsol there are two basic options for parallel computations: shared-memory (multithreading) and distributed-memory. The first approach is standard one and allows you to use all CPU sockets that your computer has. The second approach lets you run analyses on clusters using MPI. Check Comsol’s documentation and blog posts for more details.
