[gmx-users] About the -npme option of mdrun and domain decomposition

I'm trying to use Gromacs 4 mdrun with the Slurm scheduler and I'm a bit
confused by the Slurm nomenclature. The cluster has 4 cpu/node. I want
to run a job on 8 tasks with 1 cpu/task and 4 task/node. So, my job will
run on 2 nodes. If I set the -npme option to 1, the PME calculation will
run on 1 nodes, which means 4 cpu, is that right?
Another thing: according to the manual and the mailing list, domain
decomposition starts to be more efficient above ~12 nodes. If I run my
job on 4 nodes (so, 2 task/node) with domain decomposition (let say 1
node dedicated to the PME), will I limit the loss of efficiency anyway
(even by few percent)?
