This could have a lot of reasons. What kind of interconnect do you
use? If it is gigabit
Ethernet, you will need at least 80000 particles to be faster on two 4
CPU machines compared
to one. With only fast ethernet, do not expect any scaling at all on
today's fast processors.
Try grompp -shuffle -sort, this will help increase the scaling a bit.
