Dear all,

I am using the free version of charmm (v43) which I complied with:

./ gnu xlarge x86_64
./ gnu M

I am using GBSW solvation model and I was doing some testing to see how fast was the procedure. Also, my system is constrained with EMAP.

I got really strange results, so I assume CHARMM has not complied properly.

When I run it on 4, 8, 12 and 16 cores the CPU time shows it takes more to run the script on 16 cores than on 4:

NP 4 8 12 16
CPU time/min 25.53 27.27 29.09 29.87

I also tried with ./ gnu M MPICH ADM64 and some other like ./ gnu xlarge ifort x86_64, and than recompile it with mpi option, but it does not work.

I tried to recompile it with em47t, but I could not do it successfully as it was possible to compile it only in the serial version.

Can anyone help me with this issue? I suppose I am just not doing it properly, so I would appreciate the help.

Thank you!
