Is there a good reason to summing the time on all cores, when print the
timing (function wallcycle_sum)? In case there is a load imbalance the
maximum norm (multiplied with the number of cores) gives a much more
reasonable time, because the other cores will wait adding practially to the
time. In case their is no load imbalance changing the norm gives the same
I noticed that in the case where a significant amount of time is spent in
write_traj. Then the printed time is still very small, because only one core
(rank=0) is spending time so that the sum is not much affected (for many
BTW: what is GMX_CYCLE_ALL doing?
