There is no universal answer. The main considerations are disk space and time
scale on which pertinent events occur. grompp will warn you if you are
producing a large amount of data, which makes the disk space problem easy to
assess. As for the time scale of events, you will have to think about the types
of motions you are hoping to see and save accordingly.
