[gmx-users] Computational load of Constraints/COM pull force

Here are two (intended as) equivalent runs:
For the disparity of 20ns/day to 90ns/day, the runs were actually subsequent umbrella sampling frames with the same input commands:<https://uploadfiles.io/wtlu1>

Are you able to upload the log files from two intended-as-equivalent runs
to a file-sharing service and share the link? We can comment better with
