[gmx-users] About the function of "-v' in mdrun

It's almost always a good idea to run with -v because it will output basic 
state information and time-to-completion estimates as your simulation runs. 
It prints to "standard out" so if launching mdrun from a script (like on a 
cluster), make sure the script captures the output to a file.

I find the data that -v outputs to be more useful in general than the extra
details found in the .log file.
