[gmx-users] Procedure for running Gromacs in Parallel??

I am trying to run one gromacs simulation in parallel. I have already done
that on a single node, following the standard procedure & it worked fine. I
now want to run the same simulation simultaneously on multiple processors (
I believe thats what is meant by running a job in parallel) so see the
difference in speed & as well as accuracy by comparing the two results.
I was going through the previous mails on users list... which confused me
even more. Some mails say that "I have to run mdrun 'under' mpirun." I
didn't find any command such as mpirun in gromacs. Some mentioned that we
have to use "np= node numbers & then -shuffle -sort in grompp command",
and then run the "mdrun under mpirun". It is still not clear to me what is
exactly meant by that. I didnt imagine that running a parallel job can be
Could anyone explain in detail, what commands exactly I need to use to make
the simulation run in parallel, say on 10 nodes?
Also, how to check your node performance??... I want to see how the nodes
perform after I start the parallel jobs. Which command should I use for this??
I appreciate your help in clearing my confusion.
