However, a certain class of molecules is taking an absurdly long time to run the exact same simulation, even though I energy minimized the molecules individually beforehand and there are no overlaps. What might be going wrong?
Please clarify - your subject line says the EM is taking a long time, but the
content here suggests the post-EM simulation process is the problem. Which is
it? Are you sure the .mdp files were identical? Small changes can have big
effects on performance. Are you sure the hardware is fully functional? A stuck
node or lagging file system can explain "slow" runs. If mdrun is still churning
along without crashing, most likely the problem is external.
