Multiple runs of NAMD highly take fluctuating times

I am running NAMD with numsteps=30000. The WallClock times for multiple runs
are fluctuating by more than 100 % at times. For instance, one run takes 436
seconds, while another run takes 887 seconds, both with the same parameters.

This problem did not occur with numsteps=5000.

What could be the problem ?

Thanks & Regards,
