CHARMRUN vs MPI

Hi All,

This is probably a question with a complex answer.

I am currently running a small "cluster" of two dual core computers
that I have run other MD packages on with MPI.

When I run NAMD with charmrun however, it is a bit "sluggish". I have
only run it this way as compiling for MPI seems to be a bit of a chore.

My question is whether there will be any performance increase if I
compiled and ran the MPI version of NAMD?

Thanks!
Jason
